Alberta's diner and Ben's diner provides dishes that includes a main course, appetizer and dessert. Which restuarant can provide more kinds of dishes?

I) The number of the kinds of main courses that Albert's diner has is twice that of Ben's diner

II) Both Ben's appetizers and desserts are 2 more than that in Albert's, respectively

E .

1) we need to know abt the appetizer n desserts - insuffi
2) no info abt the main - insuffi

combinin' suppose say we plug in values , B's main.c - 2 :: A's 2(B)= 4
and if desserts n appetizers of A's= 2 , 2 each then B's = 4 , 4 each .

this value varies for more main course then the dess n appetizer . THUS INCONCLUSIVE

I think it's C.
The number of dishes that can be provided is M*A*D (M main, A appet, D desert). Combination of of 1) and 2) gives the proportion of of M,D and A of one restaurant to another and leads to the defined answer.

I. insuff-nothing aobut app/dess

both-insuff

-------- M-A-D
Albert 2 (1+1) = combo equals 2
Ben 1 (2+2) = combo equals 4

Albert 4 (2+2) = combo equals 16
Ben 2 (5+1) = combo equals 10
