So we need to calculate the price of each beer bottle,considering they consumed equal quantities and the price per bottle was same.

Statement 1:

The statement simply status the number of beer bottles brought.
No information about whether they consumed all bottles of beer or not.Also no information about the price of
each bottle.

Statement 2"

The statement means that A paid $16 for his share but we dont know how many bottles he consumed.

Combing equation 1 and 2,

We still dont know how many bottles have been consumed,we just know the number of bottles that were brought.
So Insufficient.

My answer would be E for this.Waiting for OA to be posted :)


Press Kudos if it helps !!

I think there is assumption in the question then between bringing bottles and consuming bottles..

In that case since its not explicitly stated in the question I would discard this question on quality issues.
