Straight E, though a little bit tricky. All we need to know is the rates of these machines. Though from both statement the rates can be:
250 copies per minute and 500 copies per minute;
250 copies per minute and 125 copies per minute.

P.S. Please post PS questions in the PS subforum: gmat-problem-solving-ps-140/ and DS questions in the DS subforum: gmat-data-sufficiency-ds-141/

very tricky and good question,

1) insuff .dont have info about 2nd machine
2) insuff again.dont have value for either machine's rate.

1+2, a bit tricky,

two cases :
1) 1st machine =250 ,2nd machine=500
2)1st machine =250, 2nd machine=125

both above cases give diff answers so answer is E
