A...
si) gives us total to be 4.4... for it to be true .29 cost stamps have to be in multiple of 5 as .15 ,the other cost is a multiple of 5....
possiblity of 5 or 10 or15 stamps of .29 cost.... a) 4.4-.29*5 is not divisible by .15 so not true..
b) 4.4-.29*10 is divisible by .15 so possible .. c) 4.4-.29*15 is not divisible by .15 so not true..
thus we get 10 of each...suff
sii) is not suff
