Question 33

What is the price of tea?

I. Price of coffee is Rs. 5 more than that of tea.

II. Price of coffee was Rs. 5 less than the price of a cold drink which cost three times the price of tea.


Let price of tea be t, coffee be c and cold drink be d.

Statement 1: c=t+5, we cannot infer value of t from this information

Statement 2: c=d-5 and d=3t, we cannot infer the value of t from this information

Using the statements together, c=t+5 and c=3t-5.



=> t=5

Hence, we can answer the questions using both statements together.
