From S1:

Grandson inherits 25% of the land.
Remaining is 75%.
As we don't have any info about the percentage of land given to Young and Elder granddaughter.
It is insufficient.

From S2:

Elder daughter gets 50% more than the younger.
Again Insufficient.

Combining both:

Grandson gets 25%.
Elder gets 50% more than Younger.
So, Elder gets 45% and younger gets 30%.
Sufficient.

C is the answer.

AkshdeepS, Can you edit the statement 2 to granddaughter, instead of a daughter.
