Let me try :-D

we need to find the volume of the rectangular solid = W x H x L

St1: gives WxH=15, WxL=24
deviding both statement together --> H/L = 15/24
Still Insuff.

St2: gives: WxH=40, HxL=40, WxL=40
Still can't find WxHxL --> Insuff

Combining both:
H=L(15/24) from St1
HxL=40 from St2
We can find out that L=8
Now we can find both W and H, finally we cn find WxHxL

answer is D, am i right?

Assuming a, b, c = each side of this rectangular solid

(1)...
ab = 15
ac = 24
3 variables 2 equations. INSUFF.

(2)...
bc = 40
2 variables 1 equation. INSUFF.

(1) + (2)...
ab = 15
ac = 24
bc = 40
3 variables 3 equation. SUFF

C. is the answer.

Two adjacent faces must share 1 side in common.(The areas must have a common factor)

15 -> 3*5
24 -> 3*8

The 3 sides are 3,5 and 8.Volume=120.A is suff.

B just states the obvious that the 2 opposite faces of the rectangular solid are equal.

My pick is A.

A for me too
From st1 you can determine required length breadth and height.

St2 is not suff its just tells us opposite faces have same area..
