Question: Max H = 1.22 * T^2, Is T < 1?

(1) Max H = 1 = 1.22 * T^2

T = 1/sqrt(1.22) = 1/(1...) Thus T <1> 1/4
T < 2/4
T < 1/2 Thus T < 1 (2) SUFF

Question: set A = {a1, a2, ..., a15} , is a1 = a2 = ... = a15?

(1) Sum(A) = 60, Thus Ave(A) = 60/15 = 4
This does not mean that all a1 ... a15 is equal INSUFF

(2) The sum of any 3 numbers in the list is 12
or the sum of any 3 number in the list is 3x(4)
To pick any number and still get the same result, the numbers in the set must be the same. a1 = 4 SUFF.

(1) The reduced price was $187.50. (2) The original price exceeded the reduced price by more than$60.00.

Question: P = orginal price, The reduced price price = 0.75P, Find P

(1) 0.75P = 187.50, P has value SUFF

(2) P - 0.75P > 60

P(1-0.75) > 60

P > 60/0.25 = 60 x 4 = 240 P has more than 1 value INSUFF

(1) On her jump Franâ€™s feet reached a maximum height of 1 meter above the floor.
(2) On her jump Fran spent more than 1/4 second ascending.

With or without the correction I would say it is A:

number 1) gives the height, so we can determine the time spent on the whole jump. SUFF

The 2) says that Fran ascended more than 1/4 seconds, it could have been: 3/8 seconds, 1/2 or even 1 second ascending. INSUFF
