What was the ratio of the number of cars to the number of trucks produced by Company X last year?
(1) Last year, if the number of cars produced by Company X had been 8 percent greater, the number of cars produced would have been 150 percent of the number of trucks produced by Company X.
(2) Last year Company X produced 565,000 cars and 406,800 trucks.
Each week we'll be posting several questions from The Official Guide For GMAT® Quantitative Review, 2ND Edition and then after couple of days we'll provide Official Answer (OA) to them along with a slution.

This post received KUDOS
Starting with statement (2)
Number of trucks and number of cars are provided, so statement 2 ALONE is sufficient to calculate the ratio.
Statement (1)
We do not know the actual numbers of cars (c) or trucks(t) produced last year, however the information we are given can be written as 1.08c = 1.5t which is sufficient to calculate the ratio.
So the answer is D: Both Statement (1) and Statement(2) are ALONE sufficient.
Also note that we don't need to do the math to calculate the ratios. Of course let me know if there was some trap that I missed _________________

(1) Last year, if the number of cars produced by Company X had been 8 percent greater, the number of cars produced would have been 150 percent of the number of trucks produced by Company X:
Say, last year, 100 cars were produced. We are told that, if the number of cars produced had been 8 percent greater, so if there were 108 cars produced instead of 100, then this 108 cars would have been 150% of the number of trucks produced: 108 =1.5*(trucks) --> (trucks) = 72.
Ratio = 100/72 = 25/18. The same as 1.5/1.08 = 25/18.

Hope it's clear.
Hi Bunuel,
This is kinda off topic but I require your guidance.
Almost all the OG question are either below 600 level or 600 level questions.
So is going through the MGMAT 9 book set and the OG questions enough to secure a 700+ score or should I refer to a book which has a collection of question of 700+ level.
TIA
