In the absence of complete question it is difficult to take the approach.

Asuuming, it is a DS question, the expression will be sqrt[(2x + y)^2].

In order to get the value of expression, both x and y are required. Hence, C.

Is it a data sufficiency question? :roll: Please specify.
As scthakur posted before, if DS type question then answer is (c).

(2x+y)^2 = 43

Edit:(2x+y) = 43

Forgot to remove the square.
