(1) There was a 20 percent increase in income in 1991.
(2) There was a 25 percent increase in costs in 1991.

For (E)

P(90) = I(90) - C(90) = 600,000
P(91) = I(91) - C(91) = ?

(1) I(91) = 1,2*I(90)
Do not know anything about C(91) => insuff

(2) C(91) = 1,25*C(90)
Do not know anything about I(91) => insuff

(1) & (2)

P(90) = I(90) - C(90) = 600,000
P(91) = I(91) - C(91) = 1,2*I(90) - 1,25*C(90)
=> not enough to solve the above equation
=> insuff

Hence, (E)
