Generally if problem is dealing with positive numbers i.e amounts, dollars if one denomination is a multiple of another denominations, multiple solutions are possible.

here 0.05 is a multiple of .25 hence first statement alone is not sufficient to solve the problem statement 2 states the one denomination is greater than the other, hence both together are required Option C
