(B) it is

T + J + S = 120,000 x 3 = 360,000

(1) T = 110,000 => J + S = 250,000
=> Can not figure out the median => insuff

(2) J = 120,000 => T + S = 240,000
=> The median is 120,000 in all possible cases => suff

Hence, (B)

Many thanks for posting your reply. Answer is B ,but i am still not sure why B is suff. If T and S are 110,000 and 130,000 respectively, then also T+S= 240,000; Isn't it? Am i missing something here?
