IMO D

Each alone is sufficient,
the equation is of form a^2-b^2, i.e (a+b) x (a-b)

if a+b is given we can find value of a-b and then solving the two the value of a

Same goes for a-b.

From the info given, we can observe that
x1= 3, x2=4, x3=8, x4=17...
thus, x2-x1=2
x3-x2=4 i.e 2^2
x4-x3=8 i.e 2^3

thus we can see that x(n+1)-xn=2^n

so X20-X19= 2^19.

Here n+1 is 20 and n is 19.

(This is because the order of the teams that finish 1st,2nd,3rd doesnt count)

The answer is 10. 5c3 = 10 5 lines, to form a triangle, you need 3 lines, so how many ways can you choose 3 out 5? 5c3 = 10 I disagree with your logic, the question is how many triangles can be formed with all the available points of intersection, not how many arrangements are possible to form one ...
