Data Sufﬁciency

Directions This data sufﬁciency problem consists of a question and two statements, labeled

(1) and (2), in which certain data are given. You have to decide whether the data given in the

statements are sufﬁcient for answering the question. Using the data given in the statements,

plus your knowledge of mathematics and everyday facts (such as the number of days in

July or the meaning of the word counterclockwise), you must indicate whether:

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

question asked.

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

question asked.

C. BOTH statements (1) and (2) TOGETHER are sufﬁcient to answer the question asked,

but NEITHER statement ALONE is sufﬁcient to answer the question asked

E. Statements (1) and (2) TOGETHER are NOT sufﬁcient to answer the question asked, and

additional data speciﬁc to the problem are needed.

www.wae.co.in

Basic tricks

2. Be very familiar with the answer choices.

3. Write down what you absolutely need in order to ﬁnd certain

quantities

4. Don’t look at the statements together.

5. Important information is often buried in the prompt.

6. Know when it’s actually necessary to solve single-variable

equations.

7. Know when it’s necessary to solve a system of equations.

www.wae.co.in

Master tips

Tip #2: use elimination and guessing to your advantage

Case One: Statement #1 is sufﬁcient on its own, Statement #2 is incomprehensible

Eliminate: B, C, E

Only possible answers: A, D

Eliminate: A, D

Only possible answers: B, C, E

Eliminate: A, C, E

Only possible answers: B, D

Eliminate: B, D

Only possible answers: A, C, E
