Is the logic with the first part that in 2004, the car owners saw the weather and just refused to even go onsite/register onsite because they knew the show was probably likely to be cancelled?

What does this statement mean ' For the first n car shows, where n is a positive integer less than 10, the fees were \$10 for preregistering a car and \$12 for registering a car on-site. For the remaining car shows, the fees for preregistering a car and for registering a car on-site were more than \$10 and \$12, respectively.'

There is one car show every year, so the first n car shows, which would mean shows in first n years, the price was 10 and 12 respectively for online regn and on site regn. However after these, the pricing increased.

You will get value of n by multiplying the figure in second column by 10 and adding it to the figure in third column multiplied by 12. If this total matches the total given in last column then the price has not increased and will be part of n.

Hi chetan2u

Is there a way we can solve the 3rd question quickly ? Or brute-force method of calculating all the values is the only way ?

Thanks

You don't need to solve anything for (C).

Here is the question stem:
For each statement, select Yes if it can be determined from the information provided that the statement is true. Otherwise, select No.

It is a Data Sufficiency type of question. Can you determine whether the statement is true? Yes, you can determine because all figures are available. Divide each Revenue by number of cars and you get the average revenue for each year. Then you can FIND that 2010 is the year of max average revenue. Hence data is sufficient, you can determine and answer is 'Yes'.
Do you need to actually find out whether it is true? NO!

So answer here will be YES.

­Is this definitively the case? To me this does not read like a data sufficiency question. The verbiage seems to be such that "if it can be determined THAT the statement IS true." To me if it's just asking if there's enough information to determine it would say something like "if it can be determined if the statement is true" or something along those lines. Just seeking clarity on this. Is it asking if there's enough information? Or is it asking if the information is there AND that it proves to be true?

I agree that there is a difference but both are questioning the sufficiency. I did notice the use of 'that' but it doesn't change what we need to do.

Q 1. For each statement, select Yes if it can be determined from the information provided whether the statement is true.

Asks you whether you can determine whether the statement is true or false. Do you have enough data to determine its veracity?

Q 2. For each statement, select Yes if it can be determined from the information provided that the statement is true.

Asks you whether you can determine that the information is true. It is not asking us whether the information is true. It is asking us whether we can determine that the information is true. So essentially it is telling us that the information is true. It is asking us whether we can figure this out with the data available to us.
For us, sufficiency is all we need to establish. We do not need to check whether it is actually true.

Are you totally sure of this? I think some of this "can it be determined" type of questions in DI are actually to check if its true or false, rather than sufficiency.

Can is sometimes be about sufficiency and sometimes about answerin if the statement is true/false? Or does it tend to be about sufficiency?
