CAT 2007 Question 1


Directions for the following four questions: Each question is followed by two statements A and B. Indicate your responses based on data sufficiency

Question 1

The average weight of a class of 100 students is 45 kg. The class consists of two sections, I and II, each with 50 students. The average weight, $$W_I$$ , of Section I is smaller than the average weight, $$W_{II}$$ , of Section II. If the heaviest student, say Deepak, of Section II is moved to Section I, and the lightest student, say Poonam, of Section I is moved to Section II, then the average weights of the two sections are switched, i.e., the average weight of Section I becomes $$W_{II}$$ and that of Section II becomes $$W_I$$ . What is the weight of Poonam?

A: $$W_{II} - W_I = 1.0 $$

B: Moving Deepak from Section II to I (without any move from I to II) makes the average weights of the two sections equal.
