To answer the question , we need to know the volume of the warehouse ,volume of the box and the nos of boxes to be stacked.

Given- vol of warehouse = 1200 * 12
1. we still dont know the nos of boxes
2. we dont know the vol of each box

E. how the arrow is drawn? we do not know.

1. the boxes could have dimensions of 30x2x1 or 6x5x2. nsf.
2. nothing.

so togather as well, we cannot say that a single box can be put upside arrow drawn.

So volume is 12*1200.

Neither statement tells us enough info. We do not know the dimensions of the warehouse and the box. Just imagine some very strange dimensions and ul see why 1 and 2 are both insuff, even together.
