A jar contains only green pencils and red pencils. If the jar contains a total of 225 pencils, what percentage of the pencils are green?

(1) The jar contains 75 red pencils.
(2) The jar contains twice as many green pencils as red pencils.

Let Green pencils be G, and red pencils be R

Then G+R=225

1.R=75, that mena that G=225-75=150
2.G=2R,tha means that 3R=225=>R=225/3=>75 So G=150

D is the correct answer because we find teh solution by both of the options independently.
