A.

given that AC=5, BC=20 and AC=25 , C should be in between AB

1) The distance between point A and point B is 25 2) Point A liest to the left of Point B.

The answer is D -- both statements are sufficient.

(1) is sufficient for the reasons already stated in this post. (2) is sufficient because we know the relative placement of A and C and the distance between them. From the question stem, we know that point B can not be between A and C because of the large distance between B and C. Therefore, B can either be to the left of A (and thus, the left of C) or to the right of A (and thus, the right of C). Statememt (2) clears up this question.

Yeah the answer is D

from the stem we get 2 situations

1) A--5--C-----20-----B 2) B-----15-------A--5--C

now we need to find out which of the above 2 situations hold

choice A says A) Distance betn A and B is 25 which means situation (1) applies - sufficient Choice B says B)Point A lies left of point B - again situation (1) applies - Sufficient

aren't there 4 possibilities from the stem?? because both A could be 5 to the left or 5 to the right of C. and B could be 20 to the left or 20 to the right of C.

Good point. My mistake, I forgot to swap the positions of A and C --> answer should be A _________________
