Answer is A

(1) This directly states the relation between the number each picked.
Let's say Carol picked X apples.

Joe : Carol
3/4X : X. --> X=100

Joe picked 75 and Carol 100


(2) Clearly not sufficient because we don't have any information about the number of apples Carol picked.

It's got to be A... we do not know if 15 apples sums up to what fraction of Carols total apples

The answer is A, and this answer is valid only if Carol and Joe picked at least one apple. If both of them picked none, then (1) is insufficient.

We need to determine whether Carol picked more apples than Joe.

Statement One Alone:

Joe picked 3/4 as many apples as Carol did.

Since Joe picked 3/4 as many apples as Carol, Joe picked fewer apples than Carol. So Carol is the one who picked more apples. Statement one is sufficient to answer the question.

Statement Two Alone:

After Carol stopped picking apples, Joe continued to pick apples until he had picked 15 apples.

Since we don’t know how many apples Carol or Joe picked, we cannot determine who picked more apples. Statement two alone is not sufficient to answer the question.

Answer: A
