On a certain fishing boat that catches tuna, wheeled carts are used to move the fish around the deck. If a cart can hold 1,600 lbs of fish, what is the maximum number of tuna that can be put in one cart?
(1) A tuna will slip through the net and not get caught unless it weighs over 5 lbs.
(2) A net full of tuna, which is 100 fish, weighs on average 800 lbs

A for me.

state 1- tells us that if the fish is caught, minimum weight is 5 lbs.. so the maximum fish that can be held in the cart is 1600/5.

hence, suff.

state 2- we just know the capacity of the net, but no information regarding the relationship between a net and cart is provided. Hence, insuff.

Hence, A for me.

A

s[1]: Tuna has a min wt of 5lbs, so can calculate the maximum number of tuna possible. Sufficient

s[2]: Avg wt of a net with 100 fish is 800. So you can say avg wt of fish is 8lbs. However you need the minimum wt of fish to calculate the maximum number a cart can hold. Insufficient.
