How much money would Kimberly have saved if she had bought her cheese at Deli A instead of Deli B?

(1) She bought equal amounts of Provolone and Swiss, and twice that amount of American.

(2) She bought 3.6 kilograms of cheese in all.

A. Statement (1) BY ITSELF is sufficient to answer the question, but statement (2) by itself is not.

B. Statement (2) BY ITSELF is sufficient to answer the question, but statement (1) by itself is not.

C. Statements (1) and (2) TAKEN TOGETHER are sufficient to answer the question, even though NEITHER statement BY ITSELF is sufficient.

D. Either statement BY ITSELF is sufficient to answer the question.

E. Statements (1) and (2) TAKEN TOGETHER are NOT sufficient to answer the question, meaning that further information would be needed to answer the question.

(B) Statement (1) is not sufficient by itself because we only learn the ratio of the weights of the cheeses. Kimberly might have bought just a couple hundred grams, or she might have bought many kilograms.

Statement (2) tells us exactly what we need to know: how much cheese was purchased. No matter the distribution, each kilogram of cheese would be $1 less at Deli A. So the answer is (B).

**I think the solution presented is incorrect and insufficient. The question clearly asks "how much money would kimberly have saved..?" which indicates that we should able to calculate the exact amount from the right answer and that we are cannot from only option B, we need A too.**
