E

Let rectangle has dimensions x and y
St1: 2x+2y = 720, x+y = 360: INSUFF

St2: Clearly INSUFF

Together:
Min area could be very small. So 1 bag may be SUFF
Max area is when x= y = 180
Max area = 32400
Max bags needed = 7

So it could be anything from 1 to 7.

But if the perimeter is less than 280 then it is C.

S1: l+w = 360
Not Sufficient.

S2: Area covered/bag = 5000 sq. ft
Whats the area?
Not sufficient.

S1 & S2:
l+w = 360
l = 300 and w = 60 area = 18,000 sq ft.
l = 260 and w = 100 area = 26,000 sq ft.

Not sufficient.
