Question : What will be the total weight of 10 poles, each of the same weight ?

Statements :
I. One-fourth of the weight of each pole is 5 kg.
II. The total weight of three poles is 20 kilograms more than the total weight of two poles.

  • 1I alone is sufficient while II alone is not sufficient
  • 2II alone is sufficient while I alone is not sufficient
  • 3Either I or II is sufficient
  • 4Neither I nor II is sufficient
Answer:- 1

From I, we conclude that weight of each pole = (4x5) kg = 20 kg.
So, total weight of 10 poles = (20 x 10) kg = 200 kg.
From II, we conclude that:
Weight of each pole = (weight of 3 poles) - (weight of 2 poles) = 20 kg.
So, total weight of 10 pojes = (20 x 10) kg = 200 kg.
