From S1:

X = Apples = 72.
And each student gets 5 Oranges each.
Possible combinations with the number of apples distributed are
Apples Students
72 1
36 2
18 4
12 6
9 8
Hence Insufficient.

From S2:

Each student gets 11 fruits each.
Clearly Insufficient.

Combining both:

Each student gets 11 fruits each. Out of which 5 are oranges.
Apples = 6.
If apples are 6, then the number of students is 12.
Y = oranges = 12*5 = 60

C is the answer.

#1
total apples = 72 , but how many children get an apple each is not sure
1 child = 72 apples; 2 children = 36
so on
in sufficient
#2
apples + oranges= 11
in sufficient
from 1&2
6 apples possible when n= 12 so
12*5 = 60 oranges
