­Hi folks - As ­Sajjad1994 mentioned, this is an official question, and we cannot change the value unless it is officially modified by the GMAC. Screenshot below, I got it in the Official Mock #4. Please change back to original AC's to aviod further confusion.

Sajjad, please do not change answers without consulting with DI mod - Chetan. This should be 12. That’s the only possible solution.

While I understand the official question says 13, the rules of math say 12. Therefore we will not be bowing down to a fat fingered typo unless new information arises which has not been provided after a few requests.

­Oh! I misunderstood it for the correct value; I thought the correct value is now updated by GMAC, but it is rather the old incorrect value. I am sorry for that.

Confusion would arise, and it was arising till we changed the question, if we do not have 12 as an option.

Just imagine someone wasting time on not only the test but on the forum too, and then we all finding ways to justify the answer 13 someway.

Now, bb has correctly added the para to let members know the value has been changed. I would add in my post why 13 as answer would open many possibilities as answer within the given options.
