I would go with C

as if s+b increases and s/s+b also increases in order for the ratio to increase s must be bigger than s+b

C for me as well.

S1=Initial nb of shares
B1=Initial nb of bonds
S2=Final nb of shares
S2=Final nb of bonds

1)
S2/(S2+B2) > S1/(S1+B1)
We can't conclude that S2>S1 without knowledge of B1 and 2.
Insufficient.

2)
S2+B2 > S1+B1
Same as above. Insufficient.

1+2)
from 1 we have:
S2/(S2+B2) > S1/(S1+B1)
S2 > (S2+B2)/(S1+B1)*S1

from 2 we have (S2+B2)/(S1+B1) > 1

hence S2 > S1
