(2) The reseller’s profit was more than the cost of repairing the car.

We do not know how much the car was bought for. INSUFFICIENT.

(2) The reseller’s profit was more than the cost of repairing the car.
There are no dollar values to go on and decipher if the said profit was more or less than \$1,500

Together
We still do not know the total cost incurred, so calculating the profit is not possible.
