Came across this question on a Facebook GRE group.

(Question) In area A, 17 percent of the acre is planted with vegetables. In area B, which borders area A, 11 percent of the acre is planted with vegetables.

(Quantity A) Of all the acre in area A and area B combined, the percent of acres that are planted with vegetables

(Quantity B) 14%

***When I solve this, if I consider the area of A and B to be equal, the answer is C. If I don’t know assume the areas, the answer is D.

Now my question is, should the fact that “area B borders area A” have any impact in my answer? Does it provide evidence that the area B is larger than area A(which leads to the result being bigger than 14%)?
