Official Solution:


(1) The sum of numbers in each of the rows is equal. So, \(x+2+1=2+1+y=1+z+2\), which gives that \(x=y=z\). Not sufficient.

(2) The sum of numbers in each of the columns is equal. So, \(x+2+1=2+1+z=1+y+2\), which again gives that \(x=y=z\). Not sufficient.

(1)+(2) All we know is that \(x=y=z\), which is not sufficient to get the value of \(x+y+z\). Not sufficient.


Answer: E

(1) The sum of numbers in each of the rows is equal.

(2) The sum of numbers in each of the columns is equal.



(1) The sum of numbers in each of the rows is equal

This does not give us the values of x, y and z, only gives information of \(x =y = z\), which is not sufficient to get the values of \(x+y+z\) as x, y and z can be any number and hence values will change.

Hence, (1) =====> is NOT SUFFICIENT

(2) The sum of numbers in each of the columns is equal

Once again, this does not give us the values of x, y and z, only gives information of \(x =y = z\), which is not sufficient to get the values of \(x+y+z\) as x, y and z can be any number and hence values will change.

Hence, (2) =====> is NOT SUFFICIENT

Combining (1) & (2)

Even after combing we will know that x = y = z, and as the values are not provided we will not be able to find the value of \(x + y + z\)

(1) & (2) =====> is NOT SUFFICIENT

Hence, Answer is E

+1 for option E.

Statement 1 : We get x=y=z ; NS
Statement 2 : We get x=y=z ; NS

Both together : No additional info ! ; NS

Hence option E.
