Is it E ?

(1) tells us out of 800, 320 are neither red nor pure woolen. The remaining 480 have 150 red sweaters. But no useful info about how many of them are pure woolen.

(2) tells us that out of 150 red sweaters , 100 are not pure wool. So the remaining 50 may be of pure wool. But no surety here also.

The wording is confusing. I jumped to B at first. I would have selected B on the test :(

FROM GIVEN

EITHER RED OR WOOL = 800-320 =480

RED ONLY = 150-X , X IS RED AND WOOL

WOOL = Y-X , Y IS WOOL ONLY

THUS

(150-X)+(X)+(Y-X) = THUS Y-X = 330 ( IE: WOOL BUT NOT RED)

BUT WE CAN NOT DEDUCT X.........INSUFF

FROM 2.....OBVIOUSLY SUFF......b

Those of you who selected B

How many of you have seen this question before?

:)

store has 800 sweaters
150 red

2) 100/150 of the red are not made of wool

there is nothing in the world which leads to the conclusion that the rest is made of wool

it can be cotton, nylon or whatever, the question does not say

OA is however B

I believe this question is misworded

I can't believe this is a real GMAT question !!! They generally don't leave any ambiguity !!!

Now I really hope I DON'T SEE THIS QUESTION ON GMAT.
