A dairy farmer has two milk pails, M and P. Milk pail M is 1/3 full. How much milk is in P relative to M?

(1) If M is poured into P, P will be full.
(2) Milk pail P is smaller than M.



I proceeded with the understanding that "milk is in P relative to M" as P/M = ?

1) If M is poured into P, P will be full.
Not sufficient , since information whether P was empty or filled already is not clear. Eliminate A and D

2) Milk pail P is smaller than M.
This gives no information, Not sufficient , Eliminate B

Consider 1) and 2). Still this does not answer how much P had earlier to calculate the relative, So answer is E

E since the question does not state if P is initially empty or filled to some capacity.
