C it is...

From stem net pay = p - t/100*p - s

From ST 1 p -s = 244 INSUFF

From ST 2 pt = 7,552 INSUFF

Combined, net pay = p - s - pt/100 = 244 - 7552/100 = 244 - 75.42. Hence SUFF

From the stem:

Step 1: designate variables ---> P = gross pay, pt = tax, s = savings

Step 2: set up an equation ---> p-pt-s = net pay

Statement 1: we don't know pt INSUFF

Statement 2: we don't know p or s INSUFF

Together: plug into Step 2 and solve ---> SUFF

(two variables, two equations are usually enough to solve the problem unless they are duplicates)
