Anne owes Bob $4, Bob owes Carol $3, and Carol owes Anne $5. If Carol settles all the debts by giving money to both Anne and Bob How much will she give Anne?

A) $1

B) $2

C) $3

D) $4

E) $5

Anne owes someone 4$ and another person owes her 5$ (so her balance is +1). If all debts are settled not by Anne (as stated), Anne should gain 1$. Answer 1.

The question asks for the amount Carol has to give to Anne. The answer should thus be $2.
