Given S+2T+2B=13

Question stem:- B=?

St1:- No item priced of \$4
Basically, we have to find (S,T,B) triplets where none of these is a 4. More than one value of B implies insufficiency. Unique value of B leads to sufficiency.
1)S=5,T=3,B=2
2)S=5,T=2,B=3

Insufficient. (there may be other triplets but we don't have enough time to check all those)

St2:- S>T>B
1) S=5,T=3,B=1
2) S=7,T=2,B=1
Sufficient.

Ans. (B)
