We need to know the Rate at which the Newstand sells the newspapers.

(1) The newsstand sells 23 newspapers per hour.

This statement gives is the information we need.hence is sufficient.

(2) The newsstand makes a profit of \$100 daily.

This statement gives the information on profit, but no information on how many newspapers are sold/hr. Hence this statement is insufficient.

Hi quantumliner,
We aren't provided any information on the number of hours for which paper is sold at the newsstand. So I guess we cannot assume the total number of hours to be 12 and calculate the total number of newspaper sold. Am I correct?

1) If the newstand sells 23 newspapers per hour. The newstand sold 23 x 12 = 276 newspapers from 6 am to 6pm. Therefore, 1 is sufficient

2) 2 in sufficient because we do not know many newspapers were sold from 6 am to 6pm.
