WE can do this without even framing eqn.

Stat 1 says that avg of all shirts and sweaters = 21.00$ means its closer to the price of sweaters ($25) vis-a-vis that of shirts ($20) hence more of sweaters must have been sold.

hence statement 1 alone is sufficient to answer the question

stat 2 says that 15 shirts + 25 sweaters = 420 hence cannot be solved.

thus Ans - A

15 sh + 25 sw = 21(sh+sw)
4sw = 6sh
2sw = 3sh Sufficient.

15 sh + 25 sw = 420
3sh + 5sw = 84

5 * 16 = 80 (max sw = 16)
Hence by trial method sw = 15, sh = 3

3* 28 = 84 (max sh = 28)
hence by trial method 3*sh = 54 gives sw = 6
meaning sh = 18,sw = 6. Hence not sufficient.

Thus A.
