Statements 1 and 2 COMBINED There are several scenarios that satisfy BOTH statements. Here are two:
Case a: Class A heights = {1,
50} and Class B heights = {2, 40}. In this case, the answer to the target question is
YES, the tallest child in Class A IS taller than tallest child in Class B?Case b: Class A heights = {1, 50} and Class B heights = {40,
60}. In this case, the answer to the target question is
NO, the tallest child in Class A is NOT taller than tallest child in Class B?Since we cannot answer the
target question with certainty, the combined statements are NOT SUFFICIENT
Answer: E
