Question stem:- To find the number of seniors

St1:-Total number of students in the room is not known.
Hence, insufficient.

St2:- Total number of students=677.
No information on number of Juniors or Seniors or any relationship between the number of seniors and juniors.
Hence, insufficient.

Combined, We have
\(S+J=677\) and
\(\frac{S-56}{J}=\frac{18}{5}\)-----------(1)
Substituting J=677-S in (1),we can determine S.
Sufficient.

Ans. (C)

Answered this in 16 seconds without doing any math.

Question: How many Seniors?

(1) No info on total number of students. Quantity could be very high or very low. Not Sufficient

(2) No info on how many are Juniors or Seniors. Could be 676 Seniors and 1 Junior or could be 675 Seniors and 2 Juniors... Not Sufficient


(1) + (2) We have the total number and the ratio. No need to work out the math, there can only be one quantity.

Answer: C

Let S= Number of Seniors
....J= ................ Juniors

(1) \(\frac{S-56}{J}\)= \(\frac{18}{5}\)

(2) S+J= 677

(1) &(2)

No need to calculate. No of seniors can be found.

Answer: C.
