Re: On a certain week, 950 visitors chose one of weekdays from Monday thro [#permalink]
I realize that the correct answer is A beacuse:
for statement 1; lets maximize all the values by saying that
one weekday <150 to simplify the calculation less say one weekday =150
If monday is 150, tuesday is 75 visitors, that reaminds for the rest of the days 725 visitor
For the rest of day except Sunday let maximize 4days * 150 visitors = 600
This let 125 visitor for Sunday that answer the YES/NO Datta sufficience

For statement 2 there is not a maximus value for that is insufficient

My answer is A

Hi Bunuel,
It doesn't say that each of the weekday needs to have visitors. However, by choosing A, we make an assumption that all weekdays have visitors. Pls explain!­

On a certain week, 950 visitors chose one of weekdays from Monday through Sunday to visit a pagoda. If twice as many visitors chose Monday than Tuesday, did at least 100 visitors choose Sunday?

(1) None of the weekdays was chosen by more than 150 visitors.
(2) None of the weekdays was chosen by fewer than 75 visitors.

The point is for (1) we cannot have a scenario where Sunday has less than 150 visitors. The fewest visitors Sunday can have is if five days had the maximum possible 150 visitors, Tuesday had 75 visitors, which would total 150*5 + 75 = 825 visitors, leaving 125 visitors for Sunday.
