A rectangular plot of land is represented on a map. What are the actual dimensions of the plot of land?

(1) The length of the rectangular figure on the map representing the actual plot of land is twice as long as the width.
In the map, the length of the rectangular plot is twice the length of the width.
This is not enough to find the actual dimension since for every unique width, we
will have a different length (Insufficient)

(2) The map is drawn so that each inch on the map represents an actual distance of 10 feet.
Knowing that an inch on the map translates to the actual plot at 10 feet is not
enough till we know the dimensions on the map (Insufficient)

On combining the information in both the statements, we still don't have the
dimensions of the rectangular plot on the map. Without that information, knowing
by what factor the map translates to the actual plot of the land, we can't find out
what the actual dimensions of the plot of land are (Insufficient - Option E)
