(1) d <1/4

(2) h < 5

Taking (1)... if d < 1/4, then h can take any of the values from 0 to 4.
hence value of "rounded" d can not be found. So no uniqe answer

Taking (2).. if h < 5, Again the value of "rounded" d can not be found.

Even taking (1) and (2) together, you get nothing...

So the answer can not be found.

Sorry ketan this is not the right ans nor it is the right approach.

you missed that we need ans just to the tenth place.

But, my ans & explanation is different from ETS. I will write that later.

but by (2) h < 5 have 2 possibilities

h = 4
------
d = 0.246 = 0.25 = 0.3

But, if h = 0, 1, 2, 3
-----------------

d = 0.236 = 0.24(max) = 0.2

so I believe you cannot get ans with (2), any comments ??

you rounded it twice. 0,246 is nearer to 0,2 as it is to 0,3

I am getting D

i. sufficient as d<1/4 then d<0.25 then h<5, then d = 0.2
ii. sufficient as h<5 then d= 0.2

D.

I) d<0.25 thus h<5 thus d=0.2
II) h<5 thus d=0.2

OA is D.

But I am still not clear, is it WRONG to round of twice in the above case ..

means if I need to round of anything to 1 decimal place then I should only be looking in hundredth place and not thousadth ??? Please clarify.
