IMO C
A) only provides price for bananas — insufficient
B) doesn’t prove de price for individual fruits . Two unknowns — insufficient
C) together we get price of bananas f on A and oranges from B .. hence can derive the answer — Sufficient

3 banana + 6 orange = 6.15

1 banana + 2 orange = 6.15/3

b is sufficient

Be very aware of DS questions
If I get the answer quickly I always assume that m wrong and re check
Ps is fine but DS is designed in a way to trap people.
