Opt A)
Given:
poodles - x
dioxins -2/3(x)

2/3(x)+x = 100
5/3(x) = 100
5x = 300
x = 60

Opt - A)

we have d + p = 100

from S2 we get p - d = 20 ( not d-p =20 )

from this we can get d why is S2 not sufficient by itself

Think the OA is wrong. Statement 2 is also sufficient.

Statement II states that the DIFFERENCE between the poodles and the doxin is 20...

In this case, shouldnt there be 2 possibilities?
Case 1: 60 poodles 40 doxin
Case 2: 40 poodles 60 doxin

difference either way is 20....Im taking this question to mean absolute difference..

Statement II insufficient...Is that right??

Newbie or not, you are absolutely right baker2145. Difference means it could be d - p or p - d, hence you cannot find the exact number.
