Clear E. Rate=volume/time and even when we combine the statements all we know is one dimension (2 feet) of the volume which flows into the tank per minute (we still need the width and length of the tank to calculate volume=2lw but from the second statement length*width*height=216 we can not get these values).

From 1 we have :

2 * l * b/min

From 2 we have :

h * l * b = 216

But we still can't get h ( or l*b), so answer is E.

l - length of base
h - height of base
