Given: A, B and C make the same type of toys
Required: How many toys can A, B and C make together

Let us assume that A, B and C makes a, b and c number of toys in a day

Statement 1:
a = b/4 or 4a = b -> (i)
a = 3c/5 or 5a = 3c -> (ii)

On multiplying (i) by 5 and (ii) by 4, we can equate the multiples of a and get
20a = 5b = 12c

This gives us a relation among a, b and c but does not tell anything about the number of toys made by them.
INSUFFICIENT

Statement 2:
a + b/2 =65 -> (iii)
b/2 + c = 45 -> (iv)

On adding the two equations, we get:
a + b + c = 110

Hence we can tell that the total number of toys made by 3 of them together are 110.
SUFFICIENT.

Hence the answer is B
