1. The firms initial profit is not enought to determune what the percent increase in profits are.(Insufficient)

2.Just knowing how many more times the initial revenue are of the initial costs, we can find the respective increase in the next year. Now, using this information, we can compute a percentage change in profits(Sufficient)

Hence, Option B is our answer
