(1) The selling price minus the real estate agent's commission was $84,600. (2) The selling price was 250 percent of the original purchase price of $36,000.

A.Statement (1) ALONE is sufficient, but statement (2) alone is not sufficient

B.Statement (2) ALONE is sufficient, but statement (1) alone is not sufficient.

C.BOTH statements TOGETHER are sufficient, but NEITHER statement ALONE is sufficient

D.EACH statement ALONE is sufficient

E.Statements (1) and (2) TOGETHER are NOT sufficient

Answer: D

Explanation:

From (1) it follows that $84,600 is 94% (100% - 6%) of the selling price, and thus the b selling price, $84,600 / 0.94, can be determined.

Therefore (1) alone is sufficient. From (2) it follows that the selling price is 2.5($36,000). Thus, (2) alone is sufficient.The best answer is the fourth choice

**9. Carlotta can drive from her home to her office by one of two possible routes. If she must Also return by one of these routes, what is the distance of the shorter route (1) When she drives from her home to her office by the shorter route and returns by the longer route, she drives a total of 42 kilometers. (2) When she drives both ways, from her home to her office and back, by the longer route, she drives a total of 46 kilometers**

A.Statement (1) ALONE is sufficient, but statement (2) alone is not sufficient.

B.Statement (2) ALONE is sufficient, but statement (1) alone is not sufficient.

C.BOTH statements TOGETHER are sufficient, but NEITHER statement ALONE is sufficient.

D.EACH statement ALONE is sufficient

E.Statements (1) and (2) TOGETHER are NOT sufficient.

Answer: C

Explanation:

Statement (1) alone is not sufficient because only the sum of the distances of the two routes is given and there are infinitely many pairs of numbers

with a given sum. From (2) the distance of the longer route can be found, but there is no information about the distance of the shorter route.

Statement (2) alone is therefore not sufficient. From (1) and (2) together, the distance of the shorter route can be determined (42 - 46/2), and the

third choice is the best.

**10. The symbol ∇represents one of the following operations: addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division. What is the value of 3∇2 (1) 0 - 1 = 1 (2) 1 + 0 = 1**

A.Statement (1) ALONE is sufficient, but statement (2) alone is not sufficient.

B.Statement (2) ALONE is sufficient, but statement (1) alone is not sufficient.

C.BOTH statements TOGETHER are sufficient, but NEITHER statement ALONE is sufficient.

D.EACH statement ALONE is sufficient.

E.Statements (1) and (2) TOGETHER are NOT sufficient.

Answer: A

Explanation:

Since 0 + 1 = 1, 0 - 1 = -1, 0 × 1 = 0, and 0 ÷ 1 = 0, it follows from (1) that ∇ represents addition, so the value of 3 ∇ 2 can be determined.

Hence, (1) alone is sufficient. Since 1 + 0 = 1, 1 - 0 = 1, 1 × 0 = 0, and 1 ÷ 0 is undefined, it follows from (2) that ∇ could represent either addition

or subtraction, so that 3 ∇ 2 could equal 5 or 1. Thus, (2) alone is not sufficient. The best answer is the first choice

**21. Is the prime number p equal to 37? (1) p = n^(2 + 1), where n is an integer. (2) p^2 is greater than 200**

A.Statement (1) ALONE is sufficient, but statement (2) alone is not sufficient.

B.Statement (2) ALONE is sufficient, but statement (1) alone is not sufficient.

C.BOTH statements TOGETHER are sufficient, but NEITHER statement ALONE is sufficient.

D.EACH statement ALONE is sufficient.

E.Statements (1) and (2) TOGETHER are NOT sufficient.

Answer: E

Explanation:

In (1) the expression n^(2 + 1) can represent a prime number less than 37, equal to 37, or greater than 37, depending on the value of n.

For example if n = 4, then 4^2 + 1 = 17; if n =6, then 6^2 + 1 = 37; and if n = 10, then 10^2 + 1 = 101; and 17, 37 and 101 are all prime numbers.

Thus (1) alone is not sufficient. Since 14^2 = 196 and 15^2 = 225, it follows from (2) that p > 14, so that p might or might not equal 37.

Thus (2) alone is not sufficient. The values of p for n = 4 and n = 6 given above show that (1) and (2) together are not sufficient, and the last choice

is the best answer.

22. If MADRAS is coded as NBESBT. How is BOMBAY coded in that code?

22. If MADRAS is coded as NBESBT. How is BOMBAY coded in that code?
