Best answer
Number of beds made by carpenter $C2 = (20-12) = 8$

Number of tables made by carpenter $C3 = (13-5) = 8$

Total number of chairs made by all carpenters $= 2+10+5+2+4= 23$

Total number of tables $= 7+2+8+3+10 = 30$

So, both statements are correct.

$C$ is correct Answer.

No of beds made by carpenter C2 = 10

No of tables made by carpenter C3 = 8

Let a = No of chairs made by all carpenters is 21

b  = no of tables made by all carpenters is 30

Hence a < b

So the statement (ii) is true

Answer is option B

Only ii
