Little confusing though, but I went with a logical approach.

Since Andrew is included in both the Sets (seniors - 1 and Seniors and Juniors - 2), any time you increase other people's bonus, Andrew's will go up Automatically, so it is safe to assume that Andrew makes more than everyone else.

1: 8, 8, 2, 1, and 1. sum = 20 and avg. = 20/5 = 4
so andrew got 4x2 = 8 which is not the largest.

2: 5 times of the avg. is half of total bonus. so suff.
