(C) BOTH statements TOGETHER are sufficient, but NEITHER statement ALONE is sufficient. (D) EACH statement ALONE is sufficient. (E) Statements (1) and (2) TOGETHER are NOT sufficient. Answer B Check each statement against D(t)=10,000(1+(r/100))t Stat1: you will have to know t in order to find out the annual interest rate that you need to calculate D(3). In other words, you can get 11000 in 5 years at rate i1 or in 10 years at i2 (i1>i2) Insuff. Stat2: clearly states the interest rate so you can go ahead with calcs.Suff.
