- Give answer (A) if the data in Statement I alone are sufficient to answer the question, while the data in Statement II alone are not sufficient to answer the question.
- Give answer (B) if the data in Statement II alone are sufficient to answer the question, while the data in Statement I alone are not sufficient to answer the question.
- Give answer (C) if the data either in Statement I or in Statement II alone are sufficient to answer the question.

Sum + S.I. For 5 years = 2 x Sum. This statement I could not understand. Please explain someone? |

Let sum be x. According to the second statement, x plus simple interest for 5 years = 2x. x+S. I for 5 years = 2x. S.I for 5 years = 2x-x. Hence x = S.I for 5 years. From the first statement. S.I for 7 years= 7000. Therefore for one year = 7000/7 = 1000. Hence S. I for 5 years = 1000*5 = 5000. Therefore sum = 5000. |

Hi, I am not getting this. Please, anyone, explain me clearly this question. |

Let me take x as a sum. According to the first statement, they given SI and a number of years. From this, you will get interest per year say 1000/year. Now from the second statement, we form the equation. X+5*1000=2X(sum and interest for 5 years is twice the sum). You will get Sum as 5000. Therefore we need both the statements to get the right answer. Thank you. |
