(1) A workday yield is 45 liters
INSUFFICIENT: We dont know the total volume of crop to be picked
(2) The expected crop is 13,500 liters
INSUFFICIENT: We dont know the rate i.e. workday yield per worker.

Combining (1) and (2)
SUFFICIENT: Number of workers = (total crop volume)/(yield per day * number of days)
\(N = \frac{13500}{{(45)*(15)}} = 20\)

Hence choice(C) is the answer.

The stem asks us, given \(W*L = 15*(WY)\), what W is.


1) This solves for WY, but we still have 2 unknowns so 1) is insufficient

2) This solves for L, but we still have 2 unknowns so again, insufficient

1 + 2: These solve for WY and L, thus we can solve for W. Sufficient
