Points A, B, C and D are on a number line not necessarily in that order. IF the distance between A and B is 18 and distance between C and D is 8, what is the distance between B and D?

(1) Distance between C and B is same as the distance between C and A.
(2) A is to the left of D on number line.

1) not sufficient, nothing mentioned about the relative directions of B and D

2) not sufficient, the relative distances of the 2 pairs of points are not mentioned.

combining, not sufficient.

after combining we know that C is in between A and B, at a distance of 9 from both, so D too should be between A and B as it is only 8 units away from C
but direction of D relative to C and B is not mentioned, so it could be on either side of C.

ans is E
