#### A sales manager at an industrial company has an opportunity

###### Data Sufficiency

(1) His new salary will be 10% higher than his old salary. No info on state tax. If it's 5%, then 50000 + 10% *1.1 - 5% *0.95 = 52250 if it's 10%, then 50000 + 10% *1.1 - 10% *0.9 = 49500. Not sufficient. (2) New taxes = \$2200 . No info on his new salary. Not sufficient. (1) & (2) Together We ha...

#### What is the sum of 3 consecutive integers?

###### Data Sufficiency

let the three numbers be (xâˆ’1),x,(x+1)

from statement (1), (xâˆ’1)+x+(x+1)<(x+1)
so 3x<x+1
2x<1
x<1/2 ---. so no definite value for x (insufficient)

from statement (2), (xâˆ’1 )/ (x+1)=3
so x=âˆ’2 and the three numbers are âˆ’1,âˆ’2,âˆ’3 and the sum = âˆ’6--> sufficient

#### How many people in Town X read neither the World newspaper

###### Data Sufficiency

We should not assume that there are just 2 newspapers available. Lets say the other category is "Other". So this question will be a Sets problem with 3 variables. Total = A + B +C - A and B both - B and C both - C and A both + common to A, B and C - Neither Statement 1) We dont know the nu...

#### If Alex and Keanu received the same total number of attempts

###### Data Sufficiency From the image above, we can see that either statement is not sufficient.

And, both the statements are not sufficient.

Hence E.

Such questions are best solved by taking different extreme cases.

#### A casino pays players using purple and orange chips; each

###### Data Sufficiency

we have to find 2p + n = ? from 1 : 5p + 7n = 53 it is a good method to solve this equation by putting numbers. Since 7 is bigger than 5, hence we will have to put smaller number of values for n. Doing this way, we get p =5, n =4 So, 2p + n = 14 Hence, sufficient. From 2, 6p+ 3n =14 taking 2 out as ...

#### While person A walked 200m, person B walked 100m. They walk

###### Data Sufficiency

a - Speed of A b - Speed of B Since they walked towards each other, their relative speed is a + b. Speed = Distance /Time Given a +b = 1500 / 10 m/ minute a+ b =150.............................(1) Also, Given a/b = 200 /100 a = 2b Put this in Equation (1) to solve for a and b a= 100 m/ min b = 50 m/...

#### At what speed was a train traveling on a trip when it had

###### Data Sufficiency

The formula Total distance travelled / Total time taken gives us the average speed of the trip and does not give us the speed at a point.

Hence both statements are individually as well as combined insufficient.

#### Carl can wash all the windows of his house in 6 hours. His

###### Problem Solving

In 1-hour, Carl can do 1/6 of work

In 1-hour, Maggie can do 1/4 of work.

Both of them can do 1/6+1/4 work in 1hour

i.e. 10/24 work in 1 hour

By unitary method, 1 work in 24/10 hour

or 12/5 hour

#### If quadrilateral ABCD, pictured above, has a perimeter of 64

###### Data Sufficiency

from 1, the length of diagonal is same. So the quadrilateral is either square or rectangle. But we cant figure out what is it. So, not sufficient. From 2, diagonals are perpendicular to each other. So, the quadrilateral is either square or rhombus. So, side = 64/4= 16 In square or rhombus, diagonals...

#### In the rectangular coordinate system, lines m and n intersec

###### Data Sufficiency

The lines will be perpendicular to each other when The product of the slope of line m and the slope of line n is -1.

From 1, slope of N = 0 - (-a) / 0 - (-a) = 1
Slope of M = -1

Product = -1
Hence sufficient

From 2, Product of slopes = -1

So Sufficient.

#### What are the values of x and y?

###### Data Sufficiency

From 1, 3x + 2y =6
x and y can take multiple values. Hence not sufficient.

From 2, x = -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, 3
y can take multple values. Hence not sufficient

From 1 and 2,
x = 0 , y =3
x=2, y= 0

Hence not sufficient.
