What will be the total weight of 10 poles each of same weight?

```Statements:
(I) One fourth of the weight of a pole is 5 kg
(II) The total weight of these poles is 160 kg more
than the total weight of two poles.```

(A) Statement II alone is not sufficient
(B) Statement II alone is not sufficient
(C) Either I or II alone is sufficient
(D) Both statements I and II together are not sufficient.

Explanation:

```(I) is sufficient. We can determine total weight of 1o
poles as 10 * 4 * 5 = 200 Kg

(II) is also sufficient, we can determine the weight.
Let x be the weight of 1 pole.
10*x - 2*x = 160 Kg
x = 20 Kg
10x = 200 Kg ```
