Not really sure why people are saying this is poor quality or out of scope of the GMAT. It's been said to death: the quant section is not a math test, it's a quantitative reasoning test. You need to consider all possibilities, and negative temperatures (even in March - come visit Chicago) are a possibility.

Let's say the question did say positive temperatures only - would Statement 2 be sufficient?

I think this is a high-quality question and I agree with explanation.

The trap of this question relies on the fact that temperature can be -ve also.

But For many people who have resided in South Asia that concept is not natural. And from experience, it hardly seems that GMAT hinges the correct answer on such geography specific knowledge.

I would request the moderator to modify this question.

I think this is a poor-quality question and I agree with explanation. helpful as a drill question, but seems out of place on a practice test. haven't seen this sort of trickery in any other gmat prep materials. still glad I encountered it!
