The answer is A.

(1) Says:

(those claiming that they planned to vote for candidate Q)/(those claiming that they did not plan to vote for candidate Q) = 4/1

Which is Sufficient as we have a definite yes as answer

(2) gives number of people who voted, but there is no information about "claims"

Insufficient.
