(1) The cancellation fee was $595 --> cancellation fee is 595/1700=35% of a package price, so the trip was canceled from 31 to 45 days prior to 4th of September. Not sufficient.

(2) If the trip had been canceled one day later, the cancellation fee would have been $255 more --> $255 is 15% of of a package price, so the trip was canceled either 31 or 16 days prior to 4th of September (15% change is from 35% to 50% and from 50% to 65%). Not sufficient.

(1)+(2) The trip was canceled 31 days prior to 4th of September. Sufficient.

Answer: C.

Anyone has problem with this question and already posted? Can I anyone post this one because I do not have a scanner and this question involves tables.

Anyway, to make it short, either (1) or (2) is sufficient
when combine (1) and (2) I got the number of days prior to departure is 31 days.

However the question ask "on what day" so I chose E because a month can have 30 or 31 days .... do you agree?

OA is C

Specific departure date is given: 4th of September, so we know that the previous month, August, has 31 days.

Hope it helps.

Stmt 1 : $595 is 35% of $1,700,hence the trip could have been cancelled on anyday within the 31 to 45 days prior to departure bracket.

Since we can’t determine the specific day it was cancelled, this statement is insufficient.



Stmt 2 : $255 is 15% of 1700,which means that there is a 15% difference between the bracket it was actually cancelled in and the next bracket.

45 - 31 35%
30 - 16 50%
15 - 5 65%

Looking at the above we can determine that the cancellation happened either in the 31 to 45 day bracket or the 16 to 30 day bracket.

Since we can’t determine the specific day it was cancelled, this statement is insufficient.

Both : We know that the cancellation fee was 35% of $1,700 and we know that if the trip was cancelled one day later an additional 15% would need to be paid.

Hence we know that the trip was cancelled 31 days before departure because on the 30th day, an additional $255 would be payable.
