To get the value of this expression, we need:
1# exact value of x and y
2# two equations in x and y
3# value for the expression 2x-y

Statement analysis
St 1: 3x +y = x +2y or x = y. two variable one equation. INSUFFICIENT
St 2: we get y = 2x. two variable one equation. INSUFFICIENT

St 1 & St 2: two equation two variable. solving we get, x =0 and y = 0. hence the value of the expression is 0. ANSWER

Option C

Can someone explain...
if we solve (x + y) + 3(x – y) = 0 we get 4x=2y , x=1/2y, thus solving for 2x – y should gives us 0 so answer should be B as (1) 3x + y = x + 2y is same as 2x – y...

The question asks to find the value of 2x – y.

2x - y is some number, which cannot be the same as equation 3x + y = x + 2y. When you simplify this equation you'll get that 2x - y = 0, so we know that the value of 2x - y is 0.

Isn't it D?

We have to get the value of 2x - y, which is 0 in both the equations.

Find: 2x – y = ?

(1) 3x + y = x + 2y
=> 3x + y - x - 2y =0
=> 2x -y =0
Sufficient

(2) (x + y) + 3(x – y) = 0
=> x+y+3x-3y=0
=>4x-2y=0
=> 2x-y=0
sufficient

So in both cases value of 2x-y=0

Answer: D

2x – y =?

1)3x + y = x + 2y
3x+y-x-2y=0
2x-y=0
sufficient.

2)(x + y) + 3(x – y) = 0
x+y+3x-3y=0
4x-2y=0
2(2x-y)=0
2x-y=0
Sufficient.

Hence Answer is Option D.

Kudos if it helps.

Yes. D because both equations give 2x – y = 0

Total support your approach of doing these questiin via counting variables in the question. But when C become too easy then try D as an answer.
