We are given a ratio and we need to find the NUMBER of americans.

S1. Note that this statement only gives the ratio.
eg . # of mexicans = 7 ; # of americans = 13
OR # of mexicans = 14 ; # of americans = 26
Not sufficient

S2. This gives no information about americans
Not sufficient

S1 and S2 combined
The example in S1 is still relevant
Not sufficient

(2) There are less than 30 Mexicans.

C:M::3:2
(1) M:A::7:13
C:M:A:::21:14:26

Americans can be any multiple of 26..not sufficient

(2) less than 30 Mexicans do not tell us anything about Americans..not sufficient

on combining since all have to be + integer possible value of Mexicans less than 30 is 14,28 hence Americans can be 26 or 52

C : M = 3 : 2
A ?

Statement 1: INSUFF
M: A = 7 : 13

M can be 14, 21,28 ..

Statment 2 : INSUFF
M is less than 30, we still have 3 possibilities. So, (E)
