Sara and Catherine are two of the twenty players on a softball team. If twelve runs were scored in a particular game, how many runs did Catherine score?

1. The ratio of the number of runs Sara scored to those that Catherine scored was 1 to 2.

2. Had 3 more runs been scored, Catherine's runs would have represented 2/5 of the total runs scored in the game.

Stmt 1 - provides info about the ratio of two players out of 20.
So, insufficient.
Stmt 2 - tells us that if 3 more runs were scored i.e if the score was 15, then Catherine would have scored 2/3 rd of the score.
In this scenario there would be 2 possible cases.

Case 1 - Those 3 runs are scored by someone else, other than Catherine. Then catherine's score would be 2/3 x 15 = 6.
Case 2 - Those extra 3 runs are scored by Catherine. Then, Catherine's new score would be 2/3 x 15 = 6 and her original score would be 6 - 3 = 3.

As there are two possible answers, insufficient.

Even with both statements together, we can't find out score of Catherine. Thus insufficient.
Hence, Answer is E
