If the average (arithmetic mean) of 6 numbers is 75, how many of the numbers are greater than 75?

(1) Four of the numbers are equal to 75 --> either other two are also equal to 75, so we would have the following set {75, 75, 75, 75, 75, 75}, in this case zero numbers are more than 75 OR one of the numbers is more than 75 and another is less than 75 for example: {70, 75, 75, 75, 75, 80}, in this case one number is more than 75. Not sufficient.

(2) One of the numbers is less than 75. Clearly insufficient.

(1)+(2) Statement (2) leaves us with only second option from statement (1), so there is one number more than 75. Sufficient.

Answer: C.

If S1 stated 'only' 4 numbers are = 75 then would A be correct ?

As i made the mistake of assuming S1 as only 4 while its necessarily not the case

(1) Four of the numbers are equal to 75.
(2) One of the numbers is less than 75.

I chose A as the answer as I thought since they mentioned only 4 of the numbers are equal to 75 so among the other 2, one must be less than 75 and another more than 75.

Why is the answer C?

Hi All,

This question is remarkably similar to a question found in the last few Official Guides:

In the OG13 and GMAT2015: page 288 #146
In the GMAT2016: page 292 #157

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
