I) The number of the kinds of main courses that Albert's diner has is twice that of Ben's diner

II) Both Ben's appetizers and desserts are 2 more than that in Albert's, respectively

E .

1) we need to know abt the appetizer n desserts - insuffi
2) no info abt the main - insuffi

combinin' suppose say we plug in values , B's main.c - 2 :: A's 2(B)= 4
and if desserts n appetizers of A's= 2 , 2 each then B's = 4 , 4 each .

this value varies for more main course then the dess n appetizer . THUS INCONCLUSIVE

I think it's C.
The number of dishes that can be provided is M*A*D (M main, A appet, D desert). Combination of of 1) and 2) gives the proportion of of M,D and A of one restaurant to another and leads to the defined answer.

I. insuff-nothing aobut app/dess
II. insuff-nothing about main

both-insuff

-------- M-A-D
Albert 2 (1+1) = combo equals 2
Ben 1 (2+2) = combo equals 4

Albert 4 (2+2) = combo equals 16
Ben 2 (5+1) = combo equals 10
