Stocks
Answer
:
GOOG  $30  5%
increase
IBM  $40  25% increase
BSC
 $20  45% increase
TWX
 $50  15% decrease
WMT
 $10  35% decrease
How
to find
answer:
GOOG increased
by 5% (hint 3), and the $20 stock by 45% (hint
4).
IBM
was
purchased for $40 (hint 5), therefore it is not either of the
two that decreased in value (hint 2);
therefore
it
increased by 25%
WMT
was not
bought for $30 or $50 (hint 2), nor for $20
(hints 2 and 4), therefore it was purchased for $10; it
didn't lose
15% (hint 1), it lost 35% (hint 2).
The
$50
stock lost 15% (hint 2), so by elimination GOOG was purchased
for $30.
TWX
was not
purchased for $20 (hint 4), it was purchased for
$50, and by elimination BSC was purchased for $20.
