A certain shop only sells items for a whole number of dollars and ninety-nine cents. If Mrs. Jones spent less than $50 at the shop, how many items did she buy?
(1) She paid $36.72 for the items that she bought.
(2) Mrs. Jones did not spend more than $10.99 for any one item.
Price tag type:-whole number of $(1+0.99)$=$2
Total spent < $50
# of item=?
St1:- She paid $36.72 for the items that she bought.
It provided us the exact amount spent.
So, we can definitely determine the # of items. We needn't to compute. (#of items=Total paid/$2)
Sufficient.
St2:- Since amount spent on any one item is a variable, hence the #of items against these amount spent would be different .
Hence, total no of items would be different in different cases.
Insufficient.
Ans. (A)
