(1) 15 parents chosen Monday or Tuesday --> we can have YES answer, (for example: 14-1-5-5-5) as well as NO answer, (for example: 10-5-5-5-5). Not sufficient.

(2) Each of the five days was chosen by at least 5 parents --> even if we distribute parents: 5-5-5-5-10, we still won't have any day which was chosen by more than 10 parents (minimizing # of parents who chose each of 4 days to maximize # of parents who chose the fifth day). Sufficient.

Answer: B.

(1) 15 parents chosen Monday or Tuesday.
(2) Each of the five days was chosen by at least 5 parents.

(1) 15 parents chosen Monday or Tuesday --> we can have YES answer, (for example: 14-1-5-5-5) as well as NO answer, (for example: 10-5-5-5-5). Not sufficient.

(2) Each of the five days was chosen by at least 5 parents --> even if we distribute parents: 5-5-5-5-10, we still won't have any day which was chosen by more than 10 parents (minimizing # of parents who chose each of 4 days to maximize # of parents who chose the fifth day). Sufficient.

Answer: B.


Missed the word more and got the wrong answer .
If it was " Was at least one of the five days chosen by at least 10 parents ?" then the answer could be E

Then
(1) 15 parents chosen Monday or Tuesday --> case 1: 10, 5 answer is yes ( showing Monday, Tuesday only )
--------------------------------------------------- -- case 2: 8,7 answer is no
2) Each of the five days was chosen by at least 5 parents -->

case1: 6 6 6 6 6 ,Answer No
case2: 10 5 5 5 5,Answer Yes

1+2

10 5 5 5 5, Answer Yes
8 7 5 5 5, Answer No

Still not sufficient

with the word " more than 10 parents " then of course the answer is B

(1) 15 parents chosen Monday or Tuesday.
(2) Each of the five days was chosen by at least 5 parents.

The catch here is at least more than 10 parents/.
From B we can find that max 10 can be assigned to one day but not in any condition we can assign more than 10 to any day. Hence B is the answer.
