I will go with D

(1) We can know what is the increased amount for for years, and as the profit inceases constantly. we can get the increase rate per year. sufficient

(2) obvisoully, states the increase amount per year.sufficient

Please explain the logic behind the ans A? I would assume the question states constant profit - statement 2 states has increased by 7,500 since 1985...

Statement 1: In 1985, profit was $212,000 and 1989 profit was 242,000. So each year profit was (242,000-212000)/4 = 7500. So it is sufficient to find the profit in 1991 by adding 15000 to 242,000.

i understand A is the answer however B can be an answer as the if the amount increasing is constant and we are told its 7500 then isn't this sufficient making the answer D?

Answer this: By knowing only the profit amount, how are you going to calculate the annual profit? Get it?

Clear A.

You cant carry information from Statement 1. Stmt 2 just gives us the rate, but what is the initial base?
