(1) The solution contains twice as much of one ingredient as the other.
(2) There is more alcohol than water in the solution.

(1) we have no info on which ingredient is in larger quantity.
insuff

(2) no info on their ratio/percentage....insuff

Combining we know ,one ingredient is twice of another(from (1)) and the ingredient which is twice of another(water) is alcohol
thus alcohol= 4 ounce , water = 2ounce
ratio = 2/4 = 1/2
suff

Ans C
