1. If one of the boxes weighs 80 pounds and
if the total weight is 150 pounds and there are 5 boxes,
the box with weight of 80 pounds is the heaviest box(Sufficient)

2.There are two cases :
Case 1: 4,30,30,30,26(where the 3 boxes with equal weight are the heaviest)
Case 2: 4,10,10,10,116(the box with the weight 116 is the heaviest)(Insufficient)(Option A)

Statement 1: weight of \(4\) boxes combined \(= 150-80=70\). Hence the box weighing \(80\) pounds is the heaviest. Sufficient

Statement 2: let the three boxes with same weight be \(x\) and the weight of the remaining box be \(y\)

so \(4+3x+y=150\). we have two variables and one equation. Hence cannot be solved. Insufficient

Option A
