It's A

1) flour to sugar = 250/100 = 2.5:1
2) flour to sugar = S+1.5/S = 1+1.5/S

rom A. If we make X = Flour and Y = Sugar.
X = 2.5Y
This is SUFF, since the ratio = 2.5:1

From B. If we make X = Flour and Y = Sugar
X could be 10.5 cups
Y could be 8 cups
Ratio = 10.5:8

OR
X could be 21
Y could be 18.5
Ratio = 21:18.5

Different outcomes, so INSUFF

A is the answer

From 1

F= S(250/100)=5S/2==> F/S=5/2 Suff

From 2
XF=YS+3/2F

Insuff
