Im nt clear about the statement 2. I thought each of the two opposite faces means:
l*b= 40
b*h=40
l*h=40
it gives the value of l, b and h- which is Square root of 40.
what does the statement 2 mean?
OA is c.

It means that out of the 6 faces of the solid rectangle, 2 opposite ones have an area of 40. This doesn't say anything about the 3rd dimension, so stmt2 is clearly insufficient to answer the question...

I do not get this question. (2) says each of the two opposite faces. A rectangular solid has 6 faces and 3 pairs of 2 opposite faces. I read this as saying that basically all areas of the faces is 40. And thus the volume would be sqrt(40^3). Why is this wrong? On the other hand (1) is insufficient as it does not tell us about the entire solid. Bunuel?
