5000 L is capacity. When both A & B are opened simul, will the tank take more than 500 mins to fill is the Q.

(1) A fills @ 5L/min ... so for 5000L -> A takes 1000 mins. Not suff as we do not know what is the rate of B with this info.

(2) B fills @ 10L/min ... so for 5000L -> B takes 500 mins. Sufficient! even if A is not used , the whole tank will not take more than 500 mins to fill up. So our answer is always "YES".

Hence Option (B) is our answer.

Best,
Gladi

I think the answer should be C because when each statement is taken alone, we do not know whether the other pipe is inward flowing or outward flowing. E.g. if we look at Statement 2 alone, we're given that B can fill tank at 10L/min but we're not told anything about A. What if A can drain tank at 10L/min?
