Alex spends 30% of his income on his children’s education, 20% on recreation and 10% on healthcare. The corresponding percentage for Susie are 40%, 25%, and 13%. Who spends more on children’s education?

(1) Alex spends more on recreation than Susie.

(2) Susie spends more on healthcare than Alex.

Given Alex spends E 30%, R 20% and H 10% ; Susie spends E 40%, R 25% and H 13%.

What should be inferred is, we do not know that the actual value of Alex and Susie Income, hence depending on that value, the %spending may vary.

Let Alex income be A, and Susie income be S

St 1: Given Alex spends more on recreation than Susie.

i.e, 20% of A > 25% of S

Assume A = 200, S=100, then 40>25. Hence Alex spends more than Susie on Recreation.

Assume A = 125, S= 128, then 25<32, Hence Susie spends more than Alex on Recreation.

Contrasting results, Hence Not sufficient.

St 2: Susie spends more on healthcare than Alex.

i.e, 13% of S > 10% of A. This is only possible when the Income of Susie is more than Alex.

Hence Susie will spend more on Recreation than Alex.

Hence Sufficient.

Option B
