I thought of this as: If any one of the option is true, it will support the prediction of the officials. So I'd selected C.

Experts, can you please throw some light on this question regarding what is being asked and options explanation!!

If 40 did not respond favourable for either candidate

Silly question, but how 40?
Statement 1 states that the number of voters who did not respond favorable for either candidate was 40.
OMG.. I think I need some sleep.

Statement 1: If 40 did not respond favourable for either candidate , then the total who did respond favorable was 100-40 = 60. 60 = 40 + 30 - both. Both = 10. Sufficient. Statement 2: Tells us the overlap between the 2 unfavorable groups. Doesn't help us to determine the overlap between the 2 favor...

(1) The tens digit of x is equal to the sum of the tens digits of y and z. Tens digit of x = b, tens digit of y and z are e and q respectively. Then b = e + q, which implies c = f + r and a = d + p (there is no carry forward in the addition of units and tens place digit of two numbers); SUFFICIENT....

All of the values in the problem are multiples of 100. We can guess and check very quickly. Let old r=300 and old d=500. When 600 republicans and 500 democrats are added, we get: new r: new d = 900:1000 = 9:10. Doesn't work. Let old r=600 and old d=1000. When 600 republicans and 500 democrats are a...

The question asks for an approximation, so we don't have to be exact in our calculations. Original ratio = 3/20 = 15/100 Decreased ratio = 9/108, not too far from 9/100 Since 15/100 and 9/100 have the same denominator, we have to worry only about the change in the numerators. Percent decrease from ...
