1. (E) There isn't sufficient information to solve 2 variables, the rate of interest & the time for which the interest is calculated.

2.(C) Combining I & II the average of the 3 numbers is 20.

What are the correct answer choices?

Concerning #2, why is the average 20?

The two statements taken together say that the possible sums of k,l,and m can be 58-62.

I would say the answer is E.

Looks like I made a wrong assumption. The answer to #2 will be (E).

(2) agree with E

lets consider the first problem it closer.

R is the yearly rate, X is the number of years, N is the number of periods within a year.
It is given that 1324=4000*(R/100N)^NX.

(1) 1200=4000*RX/100 or 120=RX; not enough
(2) 1324=4000*(R/400)^4X; not enough again

combine: two equations and two variables (R and X) seem enough. I vote for C.
