(1) The pitcher currently contains 27 ounces of water.
(2) If 9 ounces of water are added to the pitcher when it is one-quarter full of water, the amount of water in the pitcher will increase by one-fourth.


(1) Currently 27 ounces in there. But is it completely full? or half full? or quarter full? Until we know what % of pitcher makes 27 ounces, we cannot say whats the capacity of pitcher is. So Insufficient.

(2) Let total capacity = X ounces. When its one-quarter full, water in there = X/4 ounces. If we add 9 ounces, this increases the initial water quantity by 1/4. This means 9 ounces = 1/4 of X/4 ounces. OR 9 = X/16 OR X = 16*9 = 144 ounces. So pitcher can hold a MAX of 144 ounces of water. Sufficient.

Hence B answer
