A is insufficient as we do not know for how many years he deposited money in two accounts.

gamjatang, please provide OA for your questions. thanks.

Duttsit// Exactly what I thought. I thought it should be E since we do not know how many years. However, the OA is D. I guess the OA is wrong. _________________

This is what I thought when I first read the question too but then I realized this question is talking about yearly interest.

I think the interpretation of this question is that you only calculate interest when the year was over, because it did not talked about monthly interest. In other words, when the interest is $600, you know it would be at least one year since you've got interest. However it won't be two years or more because you would get more interest than $600 no matter how you allocate your money. In other words the number of years is known. _________________

Are you saying the ans for S1 will be 0 as 600 will be interest rate if whole 10,000 was deposited into 6% interest rate account? _________________
