Difficulty:

(N/A)

Question Stats:

80% (01:37) correct 20% (01:42) wrong based on 4 sessions
Can a certain rectangular sheet of glass be positioned on a rectangular tabletop so that
it covers the entire tabletop and its edges are parallel to the edges of the tabletop?
(1) The tabletop is 36 inches wide by 60 inches long.
(2) The area of one side of the sheet of glass is 2400 square inches.

Its a yes/ no type question. We cannot place the glass on the top. So I am getting the answer C. Please correct me.

I'm getting E though.

For example:
Table = 36 * 60
Glass = 2 * 1200 ... edges could be positioned as parallel, but it wouldn't cover the whole area of the table.

I also think it is E.

(1) clearly in suff. cuz we do not know the glass dimensions
(2) insuff. cuz we do not know the table dimensions

(1) and (2)

Yes, the glass may cover the table-top, but are their edges parallel ?? How are we to know that with the info provided ?

I pick E

Amit - I agree with you, although I'm not sure of your solution for (1) and (2) [for reference, my solution is above]. The question asks if a sheet of glass "can be placed", rather than "is it placed". Therefore if we find that the glass is bigger than the table in length and width, then by means it "can" be placed. Just my 2 cents - open for discussion
