1) statement... 35+b+c=120
b+c=85... insufficient since c may have 84 cents or 1 cent

2) statement.... a+b+40=120
a+b=80... sufficient.... a and b can equal 40, which would mean that c does not have the most money..... in any other case, a or b, will have more money than c....

Agree the answer is B- (no)

At their maximums they all can have 40,40,40 and c will have just as an equal amount as the rest

Thanks.

The OA also says B. but both your explanations are clearer than OA.

This question has the potential to misguide one into looking for 'which child has the most money', in which case one would not arrive at B.
