II. Total age of Vimal, Kunal and Anil is 32 and Anil is as old as Vimal and Kunal together.

 A) If the data in statement I alone are sufficient to answer the question B) If the data in statement II alone are sufficient answer the question C) If the data either in I or II alone are sufficient to answer the question; D) If the data in both the statements together are needed.

Answer & Explanation Answer: D) If the data in both the statements together are needed.

Explanation:

As given in statements I and II, we have G = V = K, V + K + A = 32 and A = V + K.

Putting V + K = A in second. we get 2A = 32 or A = 16.

Thus, V + K = 16 and V = K. So, V = K = 8. Thus, R = 8

Hence, both the statements are needed.
