(1) When she drives from her home to her office by the shorter route and returns by the longer route, she drives a total of 42 kilometers --> S + L = 42. Not sufficient.

(2) When she drives both ways, from her home to her office and back, by the longer route, she drives a total of 46 kilometers --> L + L = 46 --> L = 23 kilometers. Not sufficient.

(1)+(2) Since from (2) L = 23 kilometers, then from (1) S + 23 = 42 --> S = 19 kilometers. Sufficient.

Option C.
From S1:we can infer than Short+Long=42kms or
Shorter will be less than 21 kms and longer more than 21 kms.
Not suff.

From S2:Long route=46/2=23kms.
Still short route can't be found out.Not suff.

Combining the 2 statements:s+l=42
And l=23kms
S=19kms
Both are together suff.

L -longer route, S- shorter route
st(2) implies Carlotta *from her home to her office and back* (interpretation after comma). She drives 2L=46
Combined st(1&2): L+S=42 and 2L=46 Sufficient
