IMO E

A = 2 (B+C), what is C = ?

from 1) A+B+C +12 = 108
B+C = 96/3 = 32 (substitute for given A = 2(B+C)

Cannot say anything about B+C, if B is greater than C or is it vice versa

from 2) A+B+C -15 = 81
B+C = 96/3 = 32

Cannot say anything about B+C, if B is greater than C or is it vice versa

After combination, also we have 2 unknowns, cannot say anything.

givebn
A=2(b+c)
#1
a+b+c+12=108
or say'
b+c=32
not sufficeint
#2
a+b+c-15=81
a+b+c=96
b+c=32
again not sufficient
from 1&2
we cannot conclude on value of C
