Five people - Adam, Bob, Craig, Daniel and Evan - are of different ages. Daniel is younger than both Adam and Craig. Craig is younger than Bob but older than Evan.
Who among the five is the oldest?
D< A, C
E<C< B

(1) The average age of Adam and Bob is less than the average age of Craig and Evan.
A+B <C+E
A+ (B-C) <E
where (B-C) some positive number
This means that E is older A.
D <A<E<C<B
B is the oldest.
Sufficient


(2) The average age of Bob and Craig is less than the average age of Adam and Evan.
B+C<A+E
B< A + (E-C)
Because (E-C) is some Negative Number, we can say that A>B
D <E<C<B<A
A is the oldest.
Sufficient


Concept is good but not in a proper GMAT type format.

This is a poor quality question: on the GMAT, two data sufficiency statements always provide TRUE information and these statements never contradict each other.
