From S1:

y ≥ 15 and t = 2.
If y = 15, then remaining is 76-60-6 = 10
If y = 16, then remaining is 76-64-6 = 6
Insufficient.

From S2:

y = 17, then remaining is 76-68 = 8-3t.
If t = 1, remaining is 5
If t = 2, remaining is 2
Insufficient.

Combining both:

y = 17 and t = 2
remaining is 76-68-6 = 2
Sufficient.

C is the answer.

Remaining apples = 76-4y-3t
So, we require to know the value of y and t


1.\(y ≥ 15\) and t = 2
Substituting t=2 in 76-4y-3t, we get 76-4y-3*2=76-4y-6=70-4y.
Now, 70-4y ≥0.....70 ≥4y.....17.5 ≥y
Thus y can be 15, 16 and 17, and accordingly remaining will be 70-4*15=10 or 70-4*16=6 or 70-4*17=2
Insuff

2. y = 17
so Remaining apples = 76-4y-3t=76-4*17-3t=76-68-3t=8-3t
Now, 8-3t ≥0.....8 ≥3t.....2.66 ≥t
Thus t can be 1 and 2, and accordingly remaining will be 8-3*1=5 or 8-3*2=2
Insuff

Combined..
I gives 2, 6 or 10, while II gives 2 and 5..
Only 2 is common and the answer

C

We need to determine the value of 76 - 4y - 3t.

Statement One Alone:

y ≥ 15 and t = 2

We do not have enough information to determine 76 - 4y - 3t.

If y = 15 and t = 2, then we have:

76 - 60 - 6 = 10 apples left for Jack to keep

If y = 16 and t = 2, then we have:

76 - 64 - 6 = 6 apples left for Jack to keep

Statement one alone is not sufficient to answer the question.

Statement Two Alone:

y = 17

Since we know nothing about t, statement two alone is not sufficient to answer the question.

Statements One and Two Together:

Using the statements together we see that y = 17 and t = 2, so we have enough information to answer the question.

Answer: C
