Four candidates, including Joan, run for the presidents of a committee. The two first winners will run off in the second round. If there are 36 effective votes in the first round, did Joan go to the second round?

(1) The number of the votes the first winner won is twice the average number of votes each of the candidates won.

(2) Joan won 1 vote more than the average votes.

Statement 1 - winner 18 votes as average is 36/9 not sufficient as winner is not mentioned.
Statement 2- Joan 10 votes. Nothing about other 3. Two could could be 12 each votes with other one 2 votes. Not sufficient
Combined. Total Joan + winner = 28. So rest two put together will be 8. Hence Joan will be in second round.
