Each ststement by itself is sufficient.

We know that S + T = 7
From Statement 1: (1) The mixture has a total of 12,000 calories.
if the whole mixture was made of S the there would be 14000 calories(7x2000) but the mixture has 12000 Calories
If we substitute 1 S with 1 T then the the calorie count would be down by(2000-1500) = 500. So to get the Calorie count down by 2000 we need to substitute 4 S with 4 T.
So In the mixture we have 3 S and 4 T= (3x2000)+(4x1500) =6000 + 6000 = 12000

We can get the values exactly the same way from statement 2.

D
Statement 1:

2000X+1500Y = 12000

X+Y= 7 or X=7-Y

Substituting for X and simplifying,

500Y = 2000
Y = 4Kg.
Sufficient.

Statement 2 is sufficient, going by the above model.

It is D.

Statement 1:

Let S be P kg
Clearly T must be 7-P kg

2000xP + (7-P) 1500 = 12,000
Solving this we get P=3
So S must be 3 and T must be 4

Statement 2:

150xP+(7-P)90 = 810

Solving this we get P=3

So it is D
