Hello from the GMAT Club VerbalBot!

Thanks to another GMAT Club member, I have just discovered this valuable topic, yet it had no discussion for over a year. I am now bumping it up - doing my job. I think you may find it valuable (esp those replies with Kudos).

To keep things simple, Population for both = 100
I'll explain the most Restrictive scenario

S County
Population 100
# Of Household greater than or equal to 60K = 10
# Of Household Between 40K to 60K = 0

% above 40K = 10% AND % above 60K = 10%
None between 40 to 60 range but still satisfies conditions

M County
Population 100
# Of Household greater than or equal to 60K = 9
# Of Household Between 40K to 60K = 2

% above 40K = 11% BUT % above 60K = 9%
Some has to be in that 40 to 60 range, otherwise wont satisfy condition

Hence C is the Ans

The whole goal is the confusion of %age vs numbers.. You can't assume both counties have the same total no of households. If that were the case, the answer would be an obvious D.

Here is a scenario:

Answer is C.

There have to be some households that have incomes between 40K and 60K

B is the correct answer! I met it in the OG 13th and Im sure that the correct one is B, NOT C

everyone is saying the answer is B but when i marked B as my answer the system gave C as the right one.
Can anyone check on this

Check the correct answer by the statement and not just by the correct answer tagging A/B/C/D/E.

Correct answer is : Some households in Merton County have an annual income between $40,000 and $60,000. (Regardless of whatever tagging has been made to the answer choice - A/B/C/D/E.

this is a common pattern in gmat, test takers should know this, also, this pattern is relating to percentage and numbers, but the right answer turns out to connect with sth else.

Scenario:

Merton has 1 person who earns $1 per year and 6 people who earn $61,000 per year.
% = 85.8

Sommer has 1 person who earns $1 per year and 10 people who earn $61,000 per year.
% = 90.9

Now how is option C valid?
