If Maurice scored m points while playing the game, is m odd?
(1) Exactly three of Maurice's marbles hit the jug without going in.
(2) Exactly five of Maurice's marbles went into the jug. One point is awarded when a marble hits the jug without going in (1) Exactly three of Maurice's marbles hit the jug without going in. Gives us odd irrespective of marble goes into the jug bcoz odd + even = odd Hence Suff (2) Exactly five of Maurice's marbles went into the jug two points are awarded when a marble goes into the jug 10 points but what if 1 marble is hit the jug without going in so no info about it Hence A

(2) Exactly five of Maurice's marbles went into the jug. when a marble hits the jug without going in, X = 1 Point when a marble goes into the jug, Y = 2 Points Statement 1: 3 times X = 3 Points, which is Odd. Sufficient Statement 2: 5 times Y = 10 Points, which is even. Sufficient Hence D

Case 1) If marbles hits the jug without going in = 1 10+1 =11 Odd Case 2) If marbles hits the jug without going in = 2 10+2=12 Even Hence A not D Correct me if I'm wrong

Hence A not D Correct me if I'm wrong [/quote] Question has mentioned only two conditions. So I don't think assuming a case, in which there are any points if marble hits the jug and goes in would be correct.

Hence D Akash720Statement 1) and 2) can never have two different values i.e, even and odd in your case, and still suffice the condition in question individually.

Assuming two cases as NandishSS mentioned. Is it correct? That should do, his reasoning is better. St 1) Score = Odd Therefore either score or no score for remaining hits, the o/p will still be odd, i.e O + E = O Sufficient St 2) Score = Even But you have no detail on remaining hits and miss, could be even or be odd. InsufficientHence, A. But, please correct me if I am wrong ehh

Question stem: 2A+B=M
A is no of toss when marble get into jug B is no of toss when marble just touch the jug without going into it
Statement 1 B = 3 so e+o= o Sufficient.
Statement 2 A= 5 e+o= o e+e= e Not sufficient.
A is answer.
