in the following question:
how far is town A from town B? Town C is 12 miles east of town A.
1) town C is south of town B
2) It is 9 miles from town B to town C.
Do we assume that C is directly south of B, in which case 1) is suff. or do we say that just because it is south of it does not have to be directly south of, in which case the answer is E?
.... I tend to overthing the simplest questions
