Find out whether the data provided in the statements are sufficient to answer the question and mark the option: How many people are standing between X and Y in a row ? Statement I: X is fifteenth from the left end of the row. Statement II: Y is exactly in the middle and there are ten children standing to his right.

A

If the data in statement I alone is sufficient to answer the question, while the data in statement II alone is not sufficient to answer the question

B

If the data in statement II alone is sufficient to answer the question, while the data in statement I alone is not sufficient to answer the question

C

If the data either in statement I alone or in statement II alone are sufficient to answer the question

D

If the data given in both statements I and II together are not sufficient to answer the question

E

If the data in both statements I and II together are necessary to answer the question

Solution

## The correct option is E If the data in both statements I and II together are necessary to answer the question From II, Y being in the middle, there are 10 children to his right as well as to his left. So, Y is 11th from the left. From I, X is 15th from the left. Thus, on combining both the statements I and II, we conclude that there are 3 children between P and Q.  Suggest corrections
