Is it E
Cos
Statement 1: let there be x bouquet of a dozen each and y individual roses
So
19x + 2y=120
We can't find 12x+ y from here..As we HV to find total number of roses

Using statement 2
12x +y >= 95
We donot know the exact value of 12x + y from here as well

Combining both d statements
We get a set of values like x=10 and y =0
X= 8 and y =19

So E

Hello,
Let me try explaining.

The question prompt states that the shopkeeper only sells in 2 manners, either a single rose for 2$or a dozen roses for 19$.

Statement 1 mentions that the shopkeeper made a total of 190 rs.
that makes the equation 2x + 19y = 190, where x and y are the no. of single roses sold and bouquet of dozen roses sold.

Hi All,

This question essentially comes down to adding multiples of two numbers (although we do have to note that each $2 'option' is 1 rose and each$19 'option' is actually 12 roses). We're asked how many roses the florist sold.

1) The florist made $190.$190 is an interesting number, as it's a multiple of both 2 and 19

IF the florist sold....
95 individual roses, then the total would be $190 10 dozen (re: 120) roses, then the total would be$190
So the answer could be 95 or 120
Fact 1 is INSUFFICIENT

2) The florist sold at least 95 roses.

The same options from Fact 1 ALSO fit Fact 2...

IF the florist sold....
95 individual roses, then the total would be $190 10 dozen (re: 120) roses, then the total would be$190
So the answer could be 95 or 120
Fact 2 is INSUFFICIENT

Combined, no extra work is required since we already have two examples that fit both Facts (and provide different answers).
Combined, INSUFFICIENT
