Question : How many doctors are practising in this town ?

Statements :
I. There is one doctor per seven hundred residents.
II. There are 16 wards with each ward having as many doctors as the number of wards.

  • 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, total number of doctors in town = (1/700 x N) , where N = total number of residents in town. But, the value of N is not known.
From II, total number of doctors in town
= (Number of wards in town) x (Number of doctors in each ward)
= 16 x 16 = 256.
