Range is defined as highest no. of set - Lowest no of set

(1) No info of total terms in set A...not suff
(2)No info of total terms in set B...not suff

please explain more on this.


Since both individual options are insuff
combined we can have:-

Let set A={ 7000,10000,10000,10000,13000}
set B={ 8500,10000,10000,10000,11500}
Range=6000
or

set A ={6850,10100,10100,10100,12850}
set B= {6800,10100,10100,10100,12900}

Range = 3000

or u can take any such sets....

Thus E

==> If you modify the original condition and the question, from range= Max-min, you get set A: Ra =Ma-ma and set B: Rb=Mb-mb. Then, there are 6 variables and 2 equations, and in order to match the number of variables to the number of equations, there must be 4 more equations. Since there is 1 for con 1) and 1 for con 2), E is most likely to be the answer. By solving con 1) and con 2), the answer becomes E as well. Also, there is no relationship between the average and the range, and thus the answer is definitely E.

Answer: E
