Statement 2: Wife received $1000 less than husband and $3000 more than children.
Assume amount received by wife = x
Amount with husband = x + 1000
Amount with children = x - 3000
We know that total = 15000
Hence we can solve x + (x + 1000) + 2*(x - 3000) = 15000 to get the value of x
SUFFICIENT
Correct Option : B
