From questions we have two unknown X and 2y. Total value is 100,000 USD. S(1): X= 16,000$. We can easily calculate percentage equivalent dividing it by 100 K USD and getting the answer. Hence S(1) Sufficient.
S(2): Gives relationship between X and y. Thus we can form a liner equation by adding all the percentage values + X + 4x(replacing Y by X)= 100 to get value of X. Thus S(2) also suff.
Hence answer is D.
