Statement 2... Imagine Rectangle. All angels are equal but one cannot have all 4 vertexes on a circle. Insuff. C . Agreed that statement 2 is insufficient.

#### Reflection of lines- Are they actually tested?

###### Data Sufficiency

Hi Rahul, The rare questions on reflections usually involve only the x - axis, y - axis, x = y line and x = -y line. I doubt if reflections on any other line will be asked. Reflection of (a,b) on x-axis will be (a,-b) Reflection of (a,b) on y-axis will be (-a,b) Reflection of (a,b) on x=y will be (b...

#### GMATPREP:Bank Account problem

###### Data Sufficiency

Hi zaarathelab,

I am afraid there is no drastically different way than the one that you have mentioned ...

Perhaps just a small variation would be to calculate (1.08)^2 = 1 + .0064 + .16 = 1.1664 and go from there ...

Thanks.

#### Statistics

###### Data Sufficiency

Hi,

The median is (b+c)/2.

Let us consider each of the options.

A. The median could be (a+c)/2 if a = b.

B. It is (b+c)/2

C. It could be (a+d)/2 if a=b and c=d

d. It could be (b+d)/2 if c=d

E. It cannot be (c+d)/2 as b can never be equal to d.

Is it E?

Thanks. Hope it helps.
