I will go C

(1) p - s = 244
(2) pt = 7,552

Net pay = p - (t/100)p - s = p - pt/100 - s

(A) Insuff
Net pay = 244 - pt/100

(B) Insuff
Net pay = p - s - 7552/100

(C) Suff
Net pay = 244 - 7552/100

yes, OA is C. My mistake is similar to x2suresh's, so at first I picked E. But read carefully, the question becomes easy.
