Exactly 'N' people are standing in a queue outside a store on black Friday, and these N people also include Daniel and Maria. What is the value of N?

(1) Daniel is 12th when counted from the front of the queue, and Maria is 10th when counted from the back of the queue.

(2) There are exactly 5 people between Daniel and Maria.

I think it should be E.

I & II are clearly insufficient.

Combining I & II:

a.\(

- - - - - - - - - - - D - - - - -M- - - - - - - - -\) ( N = 12+5+10 = 27)

b. \(

- - - - - M - - - - - D - - -\) (N = 15).

So, E.
