I. M<9
II. R+N>9
III. P>8
A. I only
B. II only
C. III only
D. I and II
E. I, II and III

I'm going for E.

This forum is fun

EDIT: so, we know that "something plus M equals 10 + M". From there we get:

R + N > 9
1 + P + M = 10 + M --> P = 9 --> P > 8

But P, R, M and N are different, therefore M cannot be 9. So: M < 9.

say x=10p+r and y=10m+n => x+y= 10(p+m)+r+n

p+m=m when r+n > 9 hence II is must
now carry from r+n is 1 hence p+m+1 =10a+m a is any number
is possible when p=9 and m <9 => III and I are must

hence I,II and III are must
IMO E

a number like 41 and 32 proves that (2) need not be right. Apart from m <9, i don't find anything "must"
did i do anything wrong?

41 + 32 = 73. The tens digit is 7, I think you are looking at the units digit.

IMO E

PR
+ MN
_____

CLEARLY IF P IS NOT EQUAL TO M,THEN P+M CANT BE EQUAL TO M
UNLESS R+N>9

NOW THE CARRY CARRY FWD DIGIT WILL BE 1 ONLY (CANT B GREATER THAN 1)

SO P+1+M IS EQUAL TO M(ACC TO QUES)
WHICH IS NOT POSSIBLE IF P<8

NOW COS P CANT B LESS THAN 8,IT HAS TO BE 9
THEREFORE M HAS TO BE LES THAN 9

HENCE ALL TRUE
