C for me

1.

x * 1.12 = 504
x = 504/1.12
x = 450

Don't know by what % the original increased - Insuf.

2.

x * 1.08 = y

Don't know the initial value - Insuf.

1+2.

450 * 1.08 = 486

Sufficient

St1:
Insufficient. Only gives us the original amount at May 1.

St2:
Insufficient. Only gives us the percentage increase in the balance at May 30.

Using St1 and St2:
Sufficient. With the percentage increase and the original balance, we can work out the balance on May 30.
