C means that both A and B are not sufficient to answer the question right? And this is just because no information was given about what they did in June right?
Hi madzstar, this is what A B... mean
A Statement (1) ALONE is sufficient, but statement (2) alone is not sufficient to answer the question asked.
B Statement (2) ALONE is sufficient, but statement (1) alone is not sufficient to answer the question asked.
C BOTH statements (1) and (2) TOGETHER are sufficient to answer the question asked, but NEITHER statement ALONE is sufficient to answer the question asked.
D EACH statement ALONE is sufficient to answer the question asked.
E Statements (1) and (2) TOGETHER are NOT sufficient to answer the question asked, and additional data specific to the problem are needed.
Here the answer is C
In June 1989, what was the ratio of the number of sales transactions made by Salesperson X to the number of sales transactions made by Salesperson Y ?
(1) In June 1989, Salesperson X made 50 percent more sales transactions than Salesperson Y did in May 1989.
(2) In June 1989, Salesperson Y made 25 percent more sales transactions than in May 1989.
The question asks \(\frac{juX}{juY}=?\)
1)\(juX=1.5mayY\)
2)\(juY=1.25mayY\)
Taken by itself each statement is not sufficient.
Taken together \(\frac{juX}{juY}=\frac{1.5mayY}{1.25mayY}=\frac{1.5}{1.25}\)
Sufficient => C
