C it is for me. With 4 tollbooths, there must be 3 gaps.

g1 + g2 + g3 = 25, so at least one of them must be less than 10

C for me as well.

Consider 1) alone first. Since it only gives us the total distance between the first and last tollbooth, we cannot answer the question without knowing the number of tollbooth in between. Eliminate A) and D).

Consider 2) alone. We only know the number of toolbooth and without knowing the total distance in between, there is no way to asnwer the question. Eliminate B).

Consider 1) and 2) together and it can be figure out the distance between any 2 tollbooth. Eliminate E) and the answer is C).

It could be also possible that the gaps could be small and unequal.Hence, E.

What is the OA?

The answer is C, because the average distance between booths is 25/3 = 8.33, at least one of them must be shorter than that.
