My approach is to use the st.1 and st.2 and see if we can allocate a 0 to January and spread out the remaining 66 successfully. if that cannot be done then obviously someone needs to have a Jan birthday.

Using st.1 - If Jan=0, Feb=6,Mar=5, and all remainder months are 6. We will need to allocate 7 to december which violates that max allowable is 6. So St.1 is sufficient

Using st.2 - Lay it out similar to above....so it is sufficient.

I would go with D.

OA ?

I'm not even sure this is a great question...It's in the OG, but really you could start off with 6 people in Jan and the question would be true without any of the statements. Poorly worded I think.
