(E) Cannot be determined

For Detailed Answers..


AB and CD are two digit integers, their sum can give us only one three digit integer of a kind of AAA it's 111.
So, A=1. 1B+CD=111
C can not be less than 9, because no to digit integer with first digit 1 (mean that it's<20) can be added to two digit integer less than 90 to have the sum 111 (if CD<90 meaning C<9 CD+1B<111).

Answer: D.
