(1) The grapefruit are always packed 5 to a bag and the bags are always packed 8 to a case. =====> there will be 5*8 = 40 grapefruits in each case ......... Sufficient
(2) Each case is always 80% full. ....... IN Sufficient ...... as then the # grapefruits in each case will depend on the capacity of the case. If capacity 10grapefruits in each case or else when capacity 50....grapefruits in each case.... and so on.
Hence Ans A.
