Individual statements are clearly insufficient.

Adding both 1 and 2 gives, 9(a+b+c+d+e+f) = 18000
Therefore, a+b+c+d+e+f = 2000

C is the answer.

(1) \(7a+5b+3c+4d+2e+6f=10,000\)

(2) \(2a+4b+6c+5d+7e+3f=8,000\)



we are looking for mean of a,b,c,d,e,f.

Statement 1: clearly NOT sufficient.

Statement 2: The same as 1.

Combining :

Add both of the statements. both statements together sufficient.

9a + 9b + 9c + 9d + 9e + 9f = 18000

9(a + b + c + d + e + f) = 18000

a + b+ c + d+ e+ f = 2000

a + b+ c+ d+ e+f /6 = 2000/6

That's what we are looking for.

C is the correct answer.
