Total = 250, as average of 5 numbers is 50.

From statement 1:
Clearly insufficient.

From statement 2:
3 of the numbers are 24,25,26, then the sum of remaining 2 is 250-75 = 175.
Still insufficient.

Combining both, we can say that 2 numbers are more than 50.

C is the answer.

(1) None of the five numbers is greater than 100.

(2) Three of the five numbers are 24, 25 and 26, respectively.


#1
in sufficient as either all of no could be 50 or some no >50 & few <50
#2
75+a+b=250
a+b=175
a & b can be 87,88 or else any no where a+b= 175
in sufficient

from 1& 2
sufficient to say that a& b are two no >50
IMO C

Average of the five numbers = 50

So, Sum = 250

St 1 : None of the five numbers is greater than 100

Case 1 : The numbers are 50,50,50,50,50 Ans : Zero numbers are greater than 50

Case 2 : The numbers are 51,50,50,50,49 Ans : One

Since We are getting two different values for the answer

Not Sufficient

St 2 : Three of the numbers are 24,25,26

The sum of the remaining two = 250 - (24 + 25 +26) = 175

Case 1 : The other two numbers are 100,75 Ans : Two

Case 2 : The other two numbers are 125,50 Ans : One

Not Sufficient

St 1 and St 2 :

The cases where one of the other two numbers takes a value 50 or less is ruled out as then the fifth number will exceed 100

So, the other two values have to be each more than 50 Ex : 90,85

Unique Answer : Two numbers have value greater than 50

Sufficient

Choice C
