The question asks to find out the value of (5x + 3y )/8


1. Insufficent
X + Y = 10, but we donot know the value of X and Y

2. says average is an integer.. then both 5x and 3y has to be divisible by 8.
hence the values of X can be
X = 16, Y = 8 and X = 42 and Y = 16 works.. hence in suff..

combined, sum of X and Y is 10 and X > Y
ie. X,Y can be 6,4 7,3 8,2 9,1 ..

only 9,1 solves satifies.. hence the answer is C
