(D) for me too :)

x+y = ?

From 1
3x + y = 6 : is the equation of a line. So, there are an infinite way to combine x & y.... But what if x & y must be positive integers? Well, it seems the same but we should check it.

As y = 6 - 3*x and y > 0, we have:
y > 0
<=> 6 - 3*x > 0
<=> 3*x < 6
<=> x < 2

As x > 0 and an integer, it gives us only x = 1.

SUFF.

From 2
4x + y = 7
<=> y = 7 - 4*x

Again, as y > 0, we have:
y > 0
<=> 7 - 4*x > 0
<=> x < 7/4

Here also, x > 0 and an integer, so we arrive to x = 1.

SUFF.
