let x be there in the 2 new lots..
so average = \(\frac{240+2x}{14}<19...........240+2x<19*14...........2x<266-240.........2x<26........x<13\)
so the Q is - IS x<13?

lets see the statement..

(1) Each of the 2 lots delivered later had more than 12 processed tuna cans.
so x>12....
we can answer NO for "IS x<13"
suff

(2) Each of the 2 lots delivered later had less than 18 processed tuna cans.
if x is 17, ans is NO
if x is 10, ans is YES x<13
insuff
