(1) The number of pastries containing neither is onefourth of the number containing chocolate.
(2) One third of pastries sold containing chocolate also contained nuts. Items belonging to 2 overlapping sets can be in 4 distinct parts: the overlap between the sets, in only one set, in only the other set, or in neither set. To calculate the part that is only nuts we need to know the other 3 (overlap, only chocolate, neither). We'll look for a statement that gives us this information, a Logical approach. Note that we're told the total amount of chocolate, that is the 'overlap' + 'only chocolate'. So all we need to know is the 'neither' part. (1) this gives us the 'neither' part  enough! Sufficient. (2) this gives us the 'overlap' part  not enough. Insufficient. (A) is our answer.

(1) The number of pastries containing neither is onefourth of the number containing chocolate.
(2) One third of pastries sold containing chocolate also contained nuts. So basically there are four kinds of pastries: (1) having Only Chocolate, (2) having both Chocolate/Nuts, (3) having Only Nuts, (4) having Neither. We have to determine the number of type (3) pastries, i.e., having Only Nuts. And we know that (1) + (2) + (3) + (4) = 400 We are given that out of 400, 60% or 0.6*400 = 240 contain chocolates. So these 240 are sum of type (1) and (2). So we just need to know (4) to calculate the value of (3). Statement 1  gives us the number of type (4) pastries. these are 1/4 * 240 = 60. So we can find type (3). Sufficient. Statement 2  tells us that type (2) are 1/3 of type (1). But this is not sufficient to calculate type (3). Hence A answer

Second statement is not sufficient on its own to answer. when one or more of the statements is sufficient to answer the question, then we do NOT combine the statements. Statements have to be combined only when none of the statements is sufficient on its own to answer the question. Thus the answer is A.

Hello dear,
A coffee based business is certainly one of the best trades that you can think of. We are living in a world dominated by coffee drinkers. In estimation, around one out of five people go into a coffee shop every day to drink their favorite coffee beverages. My favorite coffee shop in Davis is Trailhead Coffee Shop, which offers organic fair trade products & Internet Cafe: Coffee, Tea, & Chocolates.

This is Venn Diagram question. Given, Universal set U = 400 Chocolate C = 0.6 * 400 = 240 N = nuts To find : NC
S1: not(C u N) = 0.25 * C = 60 now, C u N = 40060 = 340 therefore, NC = 340  C = 100 Sufficient
S2: only information about the distribution in set C is given. i.e. CN = 160, C intersection N = 80. So, not sufficient.
Ans A
