## Solution

The numbers are 2 and 2. Let's understand how:

Sarika might have got 4, which means the numbers can be either 1 + 3 or 2 + 2. So, as there were two possibilities she was not sure of the numbers.

Priya might have also got 4, so again there are two possibilities: 1*4 and 2*2.

Now, if the numbers were 1 and 3, Priya would have got 3 and she would have been sure of the numbers, but since that was not the case, Sarika was sure that the numbers are 2 and 2.

Now, Priya knows that numbers cannot be 1 and 4, because then there are only two possibilities of getting the sum as 5 which is 1+4, 2+3.

In both these cases, Sarika cannot guess the number depending on Priyaâ€™s earlier answer, as their product will be 4 and 6. Hence, more than one possibility is occurring.

**Thus, in the end, Priya also got to know that the numbers are 2 and 2.**
