A bag holds 3 gold rings, 7 silver rings, and 9 bronze rings. If John picks rings from the bag, does he pick more bronze rings than silver rings ?

1) John picks 15 rings

2) John picks 3 gold rings

A little controversy is expected.

From 1, We cannot say for sure.

If he picks just silver and bronze rings, then we have some definite answer. but throw gold in there and we have no answer

From 2, we only know that 3 gold rings are picked..we do not know whether he picks more rings. So it is not clear if 3 is the total number of rings picked..so insufficient

Combine the two, we still cant say for sure.

I have to go with E.
