Given to find P(mar) > P(May) ?

Stat 1: let the price be 100 then

P(mar) = 80 ; and P(Apr) = 100.... Insufficient to relate Mar and May...

Stat 2: P(Apr) is 120% P(May)....Insufficient to relate Mar and May...

Stat 1 + Stat 2: If we 80(Mar) , 100 (Apr) and may value is less than 120% of April...as per our case we get less than 100 i.e. some negative.

So def P(mar) > P(May) ...Sufficient...

IMO option C is correct answer...

OA please..will correct if I missed anything..

Let,The price of the stereo in April = 100.

(1)here, The price of the stereo in March (80) <The price of the stereo in April (100); no information about Its price in May ,Not Sufficient

(2)here, The price of the stereo in April (100) <The price of the stereo in May(100*\(\frac{120}{100}\),or \(\frac{1000}{12}\),or greater than 80); no information about Its price in March ,Not Sufficient

(1)+(2) The price of the stereo in March (80)<The price of the stereo in May(greater than 80)

Correct Answer C
