I was Practising For data sufficiency when I came across this strange doubt of mine.
If for a question given , if both the options are giving answers but different answers. Can I count them? or is it that I should count them valid only if I am getting a unique answer for both the questions?
1) u=10; v=12
here if I take 1, I will get answer as NO
if I take 2, I will get answer as YES.
Is getting an answer out of two Choices Provided important or getting a unique answer important?
Kindly let me know. Help me out on this!
Technically answer should be D, as EACH statement ALONE is sufficient to answer the question.
But even though formal answer to the question is D (EACH statement ALONE is sufficient), this is not a realistic GMAT question, as: on the GMAT, two data sufficiency statements always provide TRUE information and these statements never contradict each other
So, the question is flawed. You won't see such a question on the test.
