(1) The interest must be paid once every six months.

(2) The rate of interest is 4%.

A. Statement (1) ALONE is sufficient but Statement (2) ALONE is not sufficient.
B. Statement (2) ALONE is sufficient but Statement (1) ALONE is not sufficient.
C. BOTH Statements TOGETHER are sufficient, but NEITHER Statement alone is sufficient.
D. Each Statement ALONE is sufficient.
E. Statements (1) and (2) TOGETHER are NOT sufficient.

will we be assuming that the rate given is yearly?

I agree E. 2) doesn't say anything - rate of interest - for what time period??? Semi annual??? 10 Year??? 1 Year??? 30 Years??? etc.

combining 1 and 2 doesn't give us an answer.

I see your point stolyar. We can't even single out whether it it a simple or compound interest..

it is from gmat+ and the off answer is B....must be wrong. Thanks!

Statement (2) tells us all so the answer B makes perfect sense!

wonder_gmat,

how can we assume that it is a simple interest problem. furthermore, whether the annual rate given or quarterly rate... why assume?
