Two statements, labeled X and Y, follow each of the following questions. The statements contain certain information. In the questions you do not actually have to compute an answer, rather you have to decide whether the information given in the statements X and Y is sufficient to find a correct answer by using basic mathematics and everyday facts.

9) How much time will computer need to solve 150 problems?

X. The computer needs 50 seconds to solve one problem.

Y. Computer never takes more than 60 seconds to solve a problem.

(A) Statement X, Alone is sufficient but Y. Alone is not sufficient to answer this question.

(B) Statement Y, Alone is sufficient but X. Alone is not sufficient to answer this question.

(C) Statement X and Y. TOGETHER are sufficient to answer the question but NEITHER of them is sufficient ALONE.

(D) Statement X and Y. COMBINED are NOT sufficient to answer the question and additional information is needed to find the correct answer.
