The question is ambiguous. Taking the simple statement that two more inches fell on Wednesday, then then the answer is 2 inches.

Or --

1.2 + 2 = 3.2 inches

But in the question does it already give the answer? It said 2 inches of rain fell the next day. Then it said how many inches of rain fell on wednesday?

So its 2?
