Answer D.

We are given A = 8 *a and B = 10 * b, where a and b are the number of terms in A and B groups respectively.

Statement 1 : Average is closer to that of A, so A will be having the sum of terms greater. -- SUFFICIENT

Statement 2 : Sum of All terms = 52. or 8a + 10b = 52. Now, number of terms MUST be an integer, so, for a and b to be an integer, only values that satisfies this equation is b=2 and a = 4. Hence, Sufficient.
