IMO C...

Explanation:

Original drink quantity = 7+3 = 10 oz.

Let x quanitity of second drink be added which has J% of juice in it.

Statement 1: After the second drink is poured in, 40% of the entire beverage is juice.

0.4 (10+X) = 3 + X*\frac{J}{100}which is not sufficient as J and X are unknown.

Statement 2: 30% of the second drink was soda
Given only J% of the second drink as 70% but no % of the new mixture. Hence not sufficient.

Combining 1 & 2, we get the answer as now we have J = 70 in Statement 1..

Hence C....

Please share the OA...

Cheers!
