Two different teams, X and Y, which have no members in common, will merge to form a new team. If the average (arithmetic mean) height of the players on team X is 5 feet 7 inches and the average height of the players on team Y is 5 feet 10 inches, which team has more players?

(1) If a new team, team Z, is formed from teams X and Y it will have an average height of 5 feet 9 inches.
(2) There are 12 players on team X.

The answer is A.

(1) gives us how a weighed average, that can be derived from the height of players in X and Y teams, is nearer to Y, so Y has more players.

(2) does not give any information about number of players in team Y, so not sufficient.
