Hi,

A is not sufficient.
Consider 20, 20, 40, 40 the average is 30 and non is greater than 60 (2 #s are greater than 30)
Consider 0, 40, 40, 40 the average is 30 and non is greater than 60 (3 #s are greater than 30)
Thus B alone is not sufficient.

B. Two of the four numbers are 9 and 10 then the sum of the other two numbers are 4*30 - (9+10) = 101
if one number is zero the other is 101 (1 # is greater than 30)
if one number is 60 the other other is 51 (2 #s are greater than 30)
Thus B alone is not sufficient.

Taking A and B, the answer will be sufficient and we will have two numbers greater than 30.


Regards,
Jack

C

1) set can be {30 30 30 30} or {10 10 50 50}.... multiple options

2) set can be {9 10 10 91} or {9 10 50 51}..... multiple options

together: { 9 10 x y}

x+y should be 101 and both need to be less than 60. if x is 59 then y will be 101-59 = 42.

if x is 31 then y is 80 - not good. increase x which in turn will reduce y but, both will be greater than 30 for sure.
