A certain bakery sells rye bread in 16-ounce loaves and 24-ounce loaves, and all loaves of the same size sell for the same price per loaf regardless of the number of loaves purchased. What is the price of a 24-ounce loaf of rye bread in this bakery?

(1) The total price of a 16-ounce loaf and a 24-ounce loaf of this bread is $2.40.

(2) The total price of two 16-ounce loaves and one 24-ounce loaf of this bread is $3.40.

stmt1: 2 unknowns and one equation can't be solved. A, D ruled out.

stmt2: 2 unknows one equation can't be solved B, ruled out

now left with c and E. combine both equations we can solve. so E ruled out

hence C
