E

(1) Doesn't tell us about the # of players. Insufficient.
(2) Doesn't tell us if each player was distributed evenly. Insufficient.

(1) + (2) ==> there could be 3 playeres who got 6 bats, 9 balls and 12 helmets each and ratio would be 2:3:4 or there could be 9 players who 2:3:4 ...etc. Insufficient

the oa is E

however,

I chose C. What is wrong with my reasoning?

I-insuff

II-insuff

Both- if the ratio was 2:3:4

Manager distributed 18, 27 and 36 , then wouldnt that mean there were 9 players?

there could be 3 playeres who got 6 bats, 9 balls and 12 helmets each and the ratio would still be 2:3:4
