No, you cannot assume that. It's vise-versa, if there is no overlap, then you'd be told that in one way or another.

Oh, now I see that I mistakenly understood the second st.! I read it as 20 children developed fever but not inflammation.

Ok, that's it! Two CATs per day is too much!

Thanks!

1. 880 children developed neither inflammation nor fever
2. 20 children developed fever

any thoughts?

The answer is C, combine the 2 statements and its sufficient

1000-880(neither)-20(fever) =100

St1:
just tells us that #(inflmmation only) + #(fever only) + #(both fever and inflmmation) = 120. Insufficient.

St2:
Just tells us if #(fever and inflmmation) = x, then #(fever only) = 20-x. Insufficient.

St1 and St2:
#(inflmmation only) = I-x
#(inflmmation and fever) = x
#(fever only) = 20-x

So I-x + x + 20-x = 120
I-x = 100
#(inflmmation only) = 100

Sufficient.

Ans C

P.S: Solved using Venn Diagram.

Hello,

I tried solving this question through Venn Diagram. Putting the attachment here. Could anyone please let me know where am I lacking?
Total Sample = 1000
Neither I nor Fever = 880
Remaining = 120 with either Fever or Inf. or both.
Fever = 20

So, only Inflammation or Inflammation and fever = 100

And hence, according to me, I can't find the answer for the question, hence Statements are insufficient.

Bunnel - do you have a rule of thumb about when to use Venn Diagram and when to use matrix table?

For 2 groups I almost always use a matrix.

Thanks for the quick response Bunnel.
May be I am doing something wrong here and not seeing the right logic. I will appreciate your help here:
I don't see two groups. I see one group of kids who can either get one ailment or another. How do we decide if the groups are two or one?

[quote="elgo"]When 1,000 children were inoculated with a certain vaccine, some developed inflammation at the site of the inoculation and some developed fever. How many of the children developed inflammation but not fever ?

(1) 880 children developed neither inflammation nor fever
(2) 20 children developed fever[/quote

In order to solve this question we need to know the number of children who developed neither and the number of children who developed fever- it is important to note this is a binary group- based on the stimulus it is assumed that there is no group that developed inflammation and fever at the site of inoculation.

Statement (1) gives us only one piece of the equation. Insufficient

Statement (2) still leaves us with the variable of the number of children who developed neither inflammation nor fever. Insufficient.

Statement (1) and Statement (2) together allow us the calculate the number of children who developed inflammation- only because there is no overlap with these groups

Total= A + B - Neither ( in this scenario A cannot be A + C (overlap) because it is inferred from the problem, again, you either have developed inflammation or have developed a fever)
1000= A + 20- 880
120= A + 20
100= A

(1) 880 children developed neither inflammation nor fever
(2) 20 children developed fever

total = children(nothing) + children(fever only) +children (inflammation only) +children (both)
children(fever) = children(fever only) +children(both)

St1: 1000 = 880 + children(fever only) +children (inflammation only) +children (both). three variables. one equation.INSUFFICIENT
1000 = 880 +Children (fever) + Children (inflammation only)

St 2: 20 = children(fever only) +children(both)
therefore 1000 = children(nothing) + 20 +children (inflammation only)

St 1 & St 2: 1000 = 880 +20 +Children(inflammation only)

children (Inflammation only) = 100. ANSWER

Option C
