Let's say - the lots are x, y and z and X has the largest number of parts

given => x+ y + z = 70 - question - Find X?

statement 1 : x = y + z

substituting in the given equation : 2(y+z) = 70 so y + z = 35 = x : Sufficient

Statement 2: either y or z = 10 : nothing on x hence insufficient

Ans : A

A and B can give different largest lot size

(1) The number of items in the largest lot is equal to the sum of the number of items of the other two lots.

lets say 3 lots are L1, L2, and L3 and L1 the is largest lot.

As per given condition -
L1+L2+L3 = 70
L1 = L2+L3
so L1 + L1 = 70
L1 = 35

St1 is sufficient to get L1 size.

Your stated example in St1. don't satisfy given condition.

50 is not equal to 10+10.
