(2) There is an average (arithmetic mean) of 9 empty spaces in the last 7 rows.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(1) - You don't know anything about the empty spaces of the remaining 7 rows. These rows could f.i. be completely filled, or completely empty - insufficient
(2) - Same as for statement (1) - insufficient

(1) + (2) = sufficient. Now you know exactly know how many empty spaces there are and therefore how many candles there are in the box.
