1) The sum of the balances on his EverywhereCard and American Local card is $1350, which is three times the balance on his passport card.

1) The sum of the balances on his EverywhereCard and American Local card is $1350, which is three times the balance on his passport card.
So, P = 1350/3 = 450. But the distribution between 1350 is not known, It is possible E is 1000 and thus greatest or 300, and answer si nO.
Insuff

2) The balance on his EverywhereCard is 4/3 of the balance on his Passport card and 4/5 of the balance on his American Local card.
So \(E=\frac{4P}{3}=\frac{4A}{5}\)
Clearly E>P but E<A, so answer is always NO
Sufficient

B

given cards available
passport ; p , everywhere ; e and american ; a
need to determine whether e>a & p

#1
e+a=3p
e+a=1350
p = 450
so
value of e & a is not known in sufficient

#2
e=4p/3 and e= 4a/5

here we can conclude that e>p but e<a
so sufficient to conclude that the greatest balance is not on the Everywhere card
IMO B
