if you double both sides of equation 1. you get:
10x + 4y = 32
4y = 32 - 10x

substitute this into the main equation gives:
3x + (32 - 10x) = 18
-7x = -14
x = 2
SUFFICIENT

If you double both sides of equation 2. you get the original equation. This gives no additional information.
INSUFFICIENT.

therefore it is A.
