1) Not Sufficient. Length of each book is required.

2) Not Sufficient. Avg is at most 3/2 inches. Therefore total length of 25 books is at most 25*(3/2) = 37.5 inches. Length of the shelf is required.

1&2) Not Sufficient. Length of the shelf = 36 inches. Total length of books is "atmost" 37.5 inches. So length can be 20 inches for example (which fits) or 37 inches (which doesn't).

Answer : E
