Question: How much money do Vivek and Suman have together ?

Statements:

1. Suman has 20 rupees less than what Tarun has.
2. Vivek has 30 rupees more than what Tarun has.

 [A]. I alone is sufficient while II alone is not sufficient [B]. II alone is sufficient while I alone is not sufficient [C]. Either I or II is sufficient [D]. Neither I nor II is sufficient [E]. Both I and II are sufficient

Explanation:

From I, we have: S = T - 20.

From II, we have: V = T + 30.

Thus, from both I and II, we have: V + S = (T + 30) + (T - 20) = (2 T + 10).

So, to get the required amount, we need to know the amount that Tarun has.
