Two friends, Ram and Gopal, bought apples from a wholesale dealer. How many apples did they buy?

1. Ram bought one-half the number of apples that Gopal bought.
2. The wholesale dealer had a stock of $500$ apples.
1. $1$
2. $2$
3. $3$
4. $4$

$4$ if the question cannot be answered even by using both statements together

Say, Gopal bought. X apple

then Ram bought $1/2$ X

Though whole seller has $500$ apples

But it is not confirmed that both of them bought all apples or not

So, Ans $4$.
