stmnt1 -
area = l*w = 2l
perimeter = 2[l+w] = 2l + 4. So perimeter is always greater than Area. hence Suff

stmnt2-
Area= l*w = 200
here l can be 20 and w= 10 giving perimeter as 2(20+10) = 60. So perimeter is less than Area

now lets consider l = 200 and w=1 giving Area = 200 and perimeter as 2(100+1) = 202. So perimeter value is greater than Area value.

Is the value of the perimeter of rectangle R greater than the value of its area?

Is 2(L+W)>LW ?

(1) The width of rectangle R is 2 inches --> W=2. The question becomes: is 2(L+2)>2L? --> is 2>0? The answer is YES. Sufficient.

(2) The area of rectangle R is 200 square inches --> LW=200. The question becomes: is 2(L+W)>200? --> is L+W>100. We don't know that. Not sufficient.
