B.

Stmt2 is sufficient

75%M+90%F=75%T, M-male, F-female, T- total

F=T-M
75%+90%(T-M)=T
from that we can find ratio M/T which is the fraction of the students who are males.

1 & 2 Unsufficient
For C:
72/100 * M + 80/100 *F = 840 * 75/100
72M + 80F = 840 *75

.72M + .8F = .75(M + F)

Solve the above two.
OA is C.

I can get the answer with just (2)

72/100 M + 80/100 F = 75/100 (M+F)
72M+80F = 75 (M+F)
5F=3M
M:F = 5:3
M/Total = 5/8

So, should be (B).
