A. 125>2n
62.5>n
n could be 50 or 62, hence it's insufficient

B. n>60 means it must be closer to 70, wether the value is 61 or 100
hence it's B

If n>62.5, how can n be 50? If n is greater than 62.5 then n is closer to 70.

60 is midway btwn 50 and 70, so if n > 60, then n is closer to 70.

The answer is D

A) 75-n > n-50
n = 61 (n is closer to 70 )
75-n = 14 and n-50 = 11 so 14 > 11

n = 55 (n is closer to 70 )
75-n = 20 and 55-50 = 5 so 20 > 5

Therefore (A) is not sufficient.

B) if n > 60 then even if n = 60.0001 it is closer to 70 than 50
if n = 1000 then also n is closer to 70 than 50.
So Sufficient.
