GQ magazine has 5,200 words divided into 23 pages

GQ magazine has 5,200 words divided into 23 pages. A 2 page introduction is added to the article about Bill Clinton. Is the average number of words per page for all 25 pages less than 240?

1. Each page in the introduction has more than 200 words
2. Each page of the introduction has fewer than 300 words

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

If each has 600 words, the total in the introduction will be 1200 words. Since 1200 > 800, the average number of words per page in the story will be greater than 240.

Therefore, Statement 1 alone is not sufficient to determine if the average will be less than 240.

Statement 2 tells us that each of the 2 additional pages has fewer than 300 words. This means that combined, the two new pages have a total of fewer than 600 words.

Since 600 < 800, the average number of words per page in the story will be less than 240. Statement 2 alone is sufficient to answer the question.

Answer - Choice B
