1) g(x) = 2x + 2

g(3) = 2*3 + 2 = 8

So f(8) = 12

g(4) = 2*4 + 2 = 10

f(10) = ?

Insufficient

2) f(g(5)) = 18

g(5) = 2*5 + 2 = 12

f(12) = 18

Insufficient

(1) + (2) Insufficient

Answer - E

Stmt1: g(x)=2x+2 => g(4)=10
g(3)=8
f(g(3))=f(8)=12
f(10)=?
There is no equation for f(x) function. Insufficient.

Stmt2: f(g(5))=18
f(g(3))=12
Insufficient to answer f(10).

Combining, we still do not have f(x) function from either of statement.

E for me too. There is no way to figure out f(x) even when combined.
