(1) Says T- 4n = 23 Insuff

(2) says T-6n = 5 Insuff

Together find n and arrive at T

Hence C

C.

Let no. of car = X
Let no. salesman = Y

Stmt1 .
4Y = X -23
insuff.

Stmt 2.
6Y = X - 5
insuff.

Combining, we get x = 59 and Y = 9...Suff.

But if you try to deduce the number of cars sold, it varies...
Acc to stat 1, the # of cars sold are 36
Acc to stat 2,the # of cars sold are 54.

I guess the answer should be E or am I interpreting incorrectly.

vannu,

you are forgetting to add the unsold cars. For statement I, that will be 26 + 23 = 59. For Statement II, that will be 54 + 5 = 59.

Hope that helps.

But the question asks whether we can find the number of cars sold. I guess i might be misinterpreting the question...

questions is asking - "how many cars are TO BE SOLD"

ie, how many are there at the dealership that are available for selling.
