A. 2 B. 3 C. 4 D. 5 E. 6 We can PLUG IN THE ANSWERS, which represent the number of rainy days. When the correct answer is plugged in, the total number of cups = 26. B: 3 rainy days, implying 4 non-rainy days Since 5 cups of tea are consumed are on each of the 4 non-rainy days, the total number of tea cups = 5*4 = 20. Since Mo drinks 14 more tea cups than chocolate cups, the total number of chocolate cups = 20-14 = 6. Total number of cups = 20+6 = 26. Success! The correct answer is B. _________________ Mitch Hunt Private Tutor for the GMAT and GRE GMATGuruNY@gmail.com If you find one of my posts helpful, please take a moment to click on the "UPVOTE" icon.

A. 2 B. 3 C. 4 D. 5 E. 6 OA B Let h = the number of cups of hot chocolate and t = the number of cups of tea. We have h + t = 26 t - h = 14 Adding the two equations together, 2t = 40, and thus t = 20. Since Mo drank 20 cups of tea, there were 20/5 = 4 days which were not rainy and thus 7 - 4 = 3 days were rainy.
