lol. GMATBULL has added the source on the top. Veritas prep, itseems.

I guess they could ask questions this way. This is like those questions with special symbols where the define the operation for that symbol and ask to find the specific output for the given input values .
Another one that I could think of and that I came across in GMAT prep is below...

For any positive integer n, the length of n is defined as the number of prime factors whose product is n. For example, the length of 75 is 3, since 75 = 3 x5x5. How many two digit positive integers have length 6?

A)None
B)One
C)Two
D)Three
E)Four

Happy learning 8-)

For this question I think we need to know what Mattean isosceles triangle is and whether the given statements help us answer whether the triangle Q is indeed a Mattean isosceles triangle.

Stat 2 gives us what Mattean isosceles triangle is,but we still dont know anything abt Triangle Q
Stat 1 us the features of triangle Q but still we dont know what Mattean isosceles triangle is.

Combined a definite NO so C it is....

Cheers

IMO the answer to BULLs question seems C.
Here CR comes into effect and the word ONLY plays a significant role in deciding among ABCDE.

yes I think if they had not mentioned "only" answer would be E, as we would not know whether the3rdside can or cannot be equal to other 2 sides.

The OA is indeed C. Meanwhile, I thought it would be unfair to anyone who already knows the meaning of
the term. Found on VeritasPep.. Guys, am not sure gmat would test such a question, but what to know your
opinion.
