For volume of a cube ,we need to know the side of the cube as Volume of the cube is l^3 where l is side of the cube.

From (1)surface area is given means 6l^2 is given which is sufficient to get the value of l^3
From(2) length of diagonal l*sqrt(3) is given which is sufficient to get the value of l^3

Hence answer is D.

Consider giving KUDOS if it is helpful to u.

What is the volume of the cube above?

Let the side of the cube be x, then the volume will be volume=x^3

(1) The surface area of the cube is 600 square inches --> surface area of a cube equals to {area of a face} * {# of faces} --> surface \ area=x^2*6=600, --> x=10--> volume=x^3=1,000. Sufficient.

(2) The length of diagonal AB is 10\sqrt{3} inches --> diagonal of a cube equals to Diagonal=\sqrt{x^2+x^2+x^2}=x\sqrt{3}=10\sqrt{3} (x^2+x^2=square of a diagonal of a face and square of a diagonal of a face plus square of a side equals to diagonal of a cube) --> x=10--> volume=x^3=1,000. Sufficient.

Answer: D.

A cube is defined by only one value which is the length of its side. The internal angles always remain 90. So once you have the side, all other parameters of the cube inluding surface areas, volume, diagonals etc can be derived or alternatively once you have any of the other parameters the side can be derived. Straight D 5 sec answer.
