Section 2 - Data Sufficiency
Time – 35 minutes
25 Questions

Directions: Each of the data sufficiency problems below consists of a question and
two statements, labeled (1) and (2), in which certain data are given. You have to
decide whether the data given in the statements are sufficient for answering the
question. Using the data given in the statements plus your knowledge of mathematics
and everyday facts (such as the number of days in July or the meaning of
counterclockwise), you are to fill in oval.

A. If statement (1) ALONE is sufficient, but statement (2) alone is not


sufficient to answer the question asked;
B. If statement (2) ALONE is sufficient, but statement (1) alone is not
sufficient to answer the question asked;
C. If BOTH statements (1) and (2) TOGETHER are sufficient to answer the
question asked, but NEITHER statement ALONE is sufficient;
D. If EACH statement ALONE is sufficient to answer the question asked;
E. If statement (1) and (2) TOGETHER are NOT sufficient to answer the
question asked and additional data specific to the problem are needed.

Numbers: All numbers used are real numbers.


Figures:
- A figure in a data sufficiency problem will conform to the information
given in the question, but will not necessarily conform to the additional
information given in statements (1) and (2).
- You may assume that lines shown as straight are straight and that angle
measures are greater than zero.
- You may assume that the positions of points, angles, regions, etc, … exist
in the order shown.
- All figures lie in a plane unless otherwise indicated.

Note: In questions that ask for the value of a quantity, the data given in the statements
are sufficient only when it is possible to determine exactly one numerical value for the
quantity.

Example:
In ∆PQR, what is the value of x?
(1) PQ = PR
(2) y = 40

Explanation: According to statement (1), PQ = PR; therefore, ∆PQR is isosceles and


y = z.
Since x + y + z = 180, it follows that x + 2y = 180. Since statement (1) does not given
a value for y, you cannot answer the question using statement (1) alone. According to
statement (2), y = 40; therefore, x + z =140. Since statement (2) does not given a
value for z, you cannot answer the question using statement (2) alone. Using both
statement together, since x + 2y = 180 and the value of y is given, you can find the
value of x. Therefore, the answer is C.
