The Price of Rose is HIGH so who will buy more ROSES will spent than others. Each bought equal number of total flowers.
(1) Let, Kim bought:
2 Daises for he bought 4 Roses = 6
Cost 0.5*2+ 4 = 5
If Sue's mixture is the same as Kim's, then Kim and Sue spent the same. The answer will be NO.
But if 4 Daises and 2 Roses, then the cost will 0.5*4+2= 4, which will be lower than Sue. Answer is Yes.
Two Differeent Answeer.
Insufficient.
(2) Let Sue bought 2 Roses, Then Kim bought (2+4) 6 Roses.
Sue bought 6 Daises, Then Kim bought = 2 Daises [As total numbers of flower bought is equal]
Kim spent 6*1+2*0.5= $7
Sue spent 2*1 + 6*.05 = 5
So, the purchase price of Kim for flowers is higher than that of Sue.
The answer is B.
