This is from GMAT+, I can't get the answer that they provide...

If a rope is cut into three pieces of unequal length, what is the length of these pieces of rope?

I. The combined length of the two longer pieces is 12 meters.

II. The combined of the two shorter pieces is 11 meters.

I got E. I don't see how you could know from the info provided and considering the fact that the peices are not perfect integer lengths.

Just a correction. I think it asks to find the length of shortest piece. It's problem 7 of section 2, right?
