Please explain

1)suff.

since 2/3 of the students are boys, the prob of that a boy selected is 2/3.

2)insuff.

We know the number of girls. But we do not know the number of boys.

Let the number of boys is 20 then the answer will be 2/3.

And let the number of boys is 30 then the answer will be 3/4.
