Must be D. I don't think this requires explanation.

I'm sorry. But I just simply can not see how either of the statements can be sufficient and even when combined together. Can somebody explain?

I misunderstood the question. I thought Sara + Betty making more than 50,000, but not each of them. The word "both" confused me.

(1) Betty's annual salary is closer to $50,000 than is Wilma's. (2) Betty's annual salary is closer to$35,000 than it is to Wilma's annual salary.

Both Betty and Wilma earn annual salaries of more than $50000. Is Wilma's annual salary greater than Betty's? Notice that we are told that both Betty and Wilma earn annual salaries of more than$50,000.

(1) Betty's annual salary is closer to $50,000 than is Wilma's. ----$50,000---(Betty)----(Wilma)---- So, as you can see Wilma's annual salary is greater than Betty's. Sufficient.

(2) Betty's annual salary is closer to $35,000 than it is to Wilma's annual salary.$35,000----$50,000---(Betty)----(Wilma)---- Again Wilma's annual salary is greater than Betty's. Sufficient. Answer: D.
