A)
1- Since units digit cannot be 0, then it is b/w 1-9. Since you are adding 9 to k and tens digit will HAVE to move up by 1, then tens digit is now = 2. suff.
2- If units digit is 3, then tens will stay at 2 and original tens digit is 2. If units digit is 9, then tens digit would have been 1 since adding 9 to units digit would have brought tens digit up to 2. not suff.

Let the digits in k be abc , so
1. k+9 has tens digit as 3
=> c + 9 and c > 0 will always add 1 to digit b. So b must be 2 in K.

2. k+ 4 has tens digit as 2.
=> c + 4 and c > 0 may or may not add 1 to digit b. This data is insufficient.

So answer must be A.
