CAT 2001 Question Paper Question 75


Directions for the following two questions: Answer the following questions based on the information given below.

Elle is three times older than Yogesh. Zaheer is half the age of Wahida. Yogesh is older than Zaheer.

Question 75

Which of the following information will be sufficient to estimate Elle’s age?


E = 3Y
Z = W/2
Y > Z

Using statement A alone, Z and W can be determined but not E

Using statement B, Y = W. So, using this statement alone, we can get a relation between all the four ages but cannot determine the absolute values.

Using both the statements, we can determine the value of E.

10 = W/2

W = 20 = Y

E = 3*20 = 60

So, c) is the correct answer.
