Correct Answer - Option 4 : Data in both the Statements is sufficient to find the answer

EXPLANATION:

There are a total of 600 pages in the book out of which 300 were read before Monday as given in statement (II)

∴ on Monday we are left with 300 pages. This information is not sufficient to find out the answer so we will use Statement (I) as well.

According to Statement (I), Ram read the last 30 pages on Tuesday so by using this information we can say ram read 300 - 30 = 270 pages on Monday
