1. r = 3/4 s --> r=0.75s ...ie. 75% s sufficient..
2. r+s = 75/100...this does not tell us r or s so we cant calculate r % of s...insufficient..

I think there is something wrong here. If r and s both are positive integers how can
r+s=0.75 ?

well, I think the poster mistypes the condition, it maybe like r+s=75/100s or 75/100r
In this case, answer will be D

No it is not mistyped, I checked it. This question is from OG review

Precisely .. how can this be possible ? The question is definitely wrong.

May be it is r/s=75/100. i.e
r (divided by) s=75/100. Which means r=.75s.

Check the answer choice again too. May be you are not reading it right.

However, in OG if official answer is D, then in statement two, "plus" sign should have been "divide".

In OG, many times people gets confused between "plus" sign and "divide" operator. Thats font and printing problem.

I think Yes you are right, it might be divide sign not sure though...
