Question

In these a question is followed by two statements (I) and (II). Choose a, if statement (I) is sufficient to answer the question asked, but statement (II) by itself is not sufficient to answer the question. Choose b, if statement (II) by itself is sufficient to answer the question, but statement (I) alone is not sufficient to answer the question. Choose c, if both the statements (I) and (II) together are sufficient to answer the question but neither statement by itself is sufficient to answer the question. Choose d, if the two statements, even when taken together, are not sufficient to answer the question.

Q9. Did a candidate X in an election receive more than 40% of the 30,000 votes cast?

I. Candidate Y received 45% of the votes.

II. Candidate X received exactly 11,000 votes.


  1. a

  2. b

  3. d

  4. c


Solution

The correct option is B

b


We do not have any information as regards the number of contesting candidates

Statement (I) would not tell you whether X received more than 40% of the votes cast

Statement (II) makes it clear that X did not receive 12,000 or more votes. Thus, the question is answered in the negative.
