I. D weighs more than only two people, E weighs more than A but less than B.
II. A weighs more than C but less than E. E is not heavier than B.Correct
Answer – 5) If the data in both the statements I and II together are sufficient to answer the question.
From statement I:
D weighs more than only two people, E weighs more than A but less than B.
In this statement, C’s weight is not mentioned at all. Clearly, statement I is not sufficient to reach the answer.From statement II:
A weighs more than C but less than E. E is not heavier than B.
In this statement, D’s weight is not mentioned at all. Clearly, statement II is not sufficient to reach the answer.From both statements I and II together:
From statement I,
D weighs more than two people, E > A and B > E
Three cases are possible here which are as follows:
B > E > D > A > C Or
B > E > D > C > A Or
C > B > D > E > A
From statement II,
A > C, E > A and B > E
Combining these two, we get the final equation as follows:
B > E > D > A > C
B is heaviest among all.
Hence, statement I and II together are necessary to answer the question.Incorrect
