(E) for me

Let S be the set of integers

From 1
max(S) = 16

o If S={16,16,16,16,16,16,16}, then Sum(S) = 16*7 = 112 (>99)
o If S={1,1,1,1,1,1,16}, then Sum(S) = 6*1 + 16 = 22 (<99)

INSUFF.

From 2
range(S) = 10

o If S={1,1,1,1,1,1,11}, then Sum(S) = 6*1 + 11 = 17 (<99)
o If S={100,100,100,100,100,100,110}, then Sum(S) = 6*100 + 110 = 710 (>99)

INSUFF.

Both (1) & (2)

o If S={6,16,16,16,16,16,16}, then Sum(S) = 16*6 + 6 = 102 (>99)
o If S={6,6,6,6,6,6,16}, then Sum(S) = 6*6 + 16 = 52 (<99)

Agree with Fig on this on. E.

One question, though.

When the question says that 16 is the max number, does it mean that there HAS to be a 16 in the set, or just that 16 is the highest possible number that can be in the set. Not that it makes a difference here, I'm just curious.

Thanks!

Excellent explanation. I had chosen A , but after reading this explantion agree on E.

Fig has given the perfect explanation.
