Ans 'C'

Stmt 1: Least element in either set is 6
This cld be S= {6,9,12}& T= {6,12}
Median of S = 9, Median of T=9 -> Botrh are the same
If S ={6,9} & T= {6,12}, Median os S = 7.5, median of T = 9
=> 1 is not suff

Stmt 2: Set T contains twice the no of elements of Set S
=> Insuff as result cld vary depending on the actual members of each set.

Stmt 1 & 2 together:
S={6,12} - median = 9
T={6,12,18,24} - median = 30
Median of S < MEdian of T
=> 'C'

C) !

1) no information about the number of element in the set => insuff

2) could be +ve or -ve => in suff

1) + 2) S=>6,9 T=>6,12,18,24 T>S

For (2) you don't know the starting number or ending number of both sets so you don't know where they are in the number axis, and it's not sufficient to compare the size of their medians.
