I find this question, give it a try

data sufficiency in some months last year, natalie, a sales representative at SmithKline & Beecham, went over $60000 in sales. in how many months last year did she do so?

1. last year, the number of months in which natalie went over $60000 was 8 months more than the number of months in which she did not. 2. last year, the number of months in which natalie went below $60000 was 1/5 the number of months in which she did not.

1) You can solve for number of month > 60K which is the question asked.
2) You can solve for number of month not < 60K but no info on whether it equal to or greater than.

Given the context of the question, IMO, it is reasonable to assume that we are talking about 12 months (we are talking about "last year").

From 2. we get no of months in which natalie went
below $60000 = 2. that means remaining 10 months either she == 60000 or > 60000.
From 1. no of months > 60000 = 8 + no of months <= 60000. we cannont find this information.
