In a certain year the United Nations' total expenditures were $1.6 billion. Of this amount, 67.8 percent was paid by the 6 highest-contributing countries, and the balance was paid by the remaining 153 countries. Was country X among the 6 highest-contributing countries? (1) 56 percent of the total expenditures was paid by the 4 highest-contributing countries, each of which paid more than Country X. (2) Country X paid 4.8 percent of the total expenditures.

We do not know anymore information at this point. St2: country x paid = 0.0768b. but we do not know anything else. Using St1 and St2: We know 0.896b are paid off by the 4 highest-contributing countries. So we have 0.704b left to split up. Of this, 0.1888 is paid by the next two highest contributing countries. At this point, we still can't deduce if X is among the 6 highest contributing countries.

Stmt1: we don't know how 67.8-56.0 = 11.8 % is divided between x and the sixth country. So Insuff. Stmt2: Clearly insuff Combining two We know the x = 4.8 % and the sixth country may be 3 %. Still we don't know whether x can be counted in most contributing countries.
