Each of people voted once in an election, X got 483 from male voters, Y got 433 from female voters. How many votes did X get?
1) X got votes from 50% of male voters
2) Y got votes from 60% of female voters
Think it should be B. x has 483 from male voters, Y has 60% of female so X has 40% of female votes and we can calculate the number of votes that X got.
how do you know that there were only two candidates?
exactly. How do you know that there are exactly 2 candidates in the fray. the question doesnt tell us anything about the number of candidates. However, if we do assume that there are ONLY X and y, then the answer is B.
In DS, we can't assume things unless specified.
Hence, as we are not sure about the other candidates apart from X & Y,
we don't get a unique solution even after combining both the statements.
