stat1 : since s is less than 1... it will be in decimals...
1.44 *s^2 will be less than when s = 0.2
1.44 * s^2 will grater than 1 when s =0.3.. not suff

stat2: maximum height is 1m.. when height is 1 m... s= sqrt(1/1.44) = less than 1... hence s will be always less than 1..suff
ans B

Consider statement A :
Kerry took less than 1 second to descend.

The question is asking is S<1 and it is mentioned that "After Kerry jumped directly upward from level ground her feet returned to the ground S seconds later".

Since S as mentioned is the time taken to descend.

Therefore Statement A is sufficient.

Consider Statement B :

Kerry's feet reached a maximum height of 1 meter above the ground.

Maximum Height => 1.44*S^2 =1

S^2 = 1/1.44

From the above equation we know that the value of S<1

Statement B is sufficient.

Option D is the answer.
