If m and n are integers, is m odd? 1) n + m is odd : If m+n is odd m can be odd or m can be even because we don't know the value of n so this statement is insufficient 2) n + m = n^2 + 5 : We know that n and n^2 have the same parity ; that is if n is even n^2 is even and so on .... then m = n^2-n +...

We know that the total number of Pens to pencil ratio for the combined container The ratio = 3:5 hence the total number must be a multiple of 8 so b , c and d out Left with a and e a= 5600 and e = 8000 , but we know the ratio of pens to pencils in container B so a is too low hence the answer is E

There are lots of ways Lets take X =50 , why do we take X = 50 because x is a variable and X can take any value from 1 to 99 ( because x is a % and that there is x and 100-x , so x can take from 1 to 99 ) If x is 50 then F travels 1/2 the distance @ 40 and 1/2 @ 60 so we can easily find the average ...
