Question: How much was the total sale of the company ?

Statements:

1. The company sold 8000 units of product A each costing Rs. 25.
2. This company has no other product line.

I alone is sufficient while II alone is not sufficient
II alone is sufficient while I alone is not sufficient
Either I or II is sufficient
Neither I nor II is sufficient
Both I and II are sufficient
Explanation:

From I, total sale of product A = Rs. (8000 x 25) = Rs. 200000.

From II, we know that the company deals only in product A.

This implies that sale of product A is the total sale of the company, which is Rs. 200000.

How can we come to the conclusion, when profit is not given?

How can we conclude that company deals only in product A?

Without profit how can we get sell price where we are given only cost price?

How do you know whether is a C or E because the answers look alike?

Statement 2 alone is not sufficient to answer the above question because we do not get any estimate of the data hence we can not calculate the actual earning while the combination of both the statement can provide a feasible solution. Hence A is correct.

How can we come to the conclusion of option E when from statement 2 nothing can be concluded?

How can the sale of the company can determine if Only cost price is given?

It is written there that it is a cost price and not a selling price.
