c:f = 2:1

1. 33 grams of ingredients
cheese = (2/3)*33 = 22 grams sufficient !!

2. flour: t-flour = 1:3 insufficient !!

(1) the pizza requires 33 grams of ingredients
(2) the ratio of the number of grams of flour to the total number of grams used in the recipe is 1:3


\(\frac{Chees}{Floor} = \frac{C}{F} = \frac{2}{1}\)

(1) the pizza requires 33 grams of ingredients

Total = 33 Grams

2x + 1x = 33

3x = 33

x = 11

We need not solve the equation, we can directly get the answer!

Hence, (1) ===== is SUFFICIENT

(2) the ratio of the number of grams of flour to the total number of grams used in the recipe is 1:3

This information is not sufficient to calculate the total cheese required.

Hence, (2) ===== is NOT SUFFICIENT


Hence, Answer is A

C/F = 2/1
Therefore 2*x+1*x= T (total gms of cheese and flour combined in the pizza)

(1) T=33
3x=33
Hence sufficient

(2) F/(C+F) = 1/3
C/F=2/1. This is given in the question.
Hence insufficient

Ans : A
