(1) The amount of Chemical X that was added was 2/3 times the amount of Chemical Y in the vessel.

(2) There was 60 milliliters of Chemical Y in the vessel

Question: Quantity of Chemical X = ?

Statement 1: The amount of Chemical X that was added was 2/3 times the amount of Chemical Y in the vessel.

This tells us the percentage of Chemical X but no absolute quantities are known hence
NOT SUFFICIENT

Statement 2: There was 60 milliliters of Chemical Y in the vessel

Quantity of Chemical X can NOT be determined as the relationship between quantities of X and Y is unknown hence
NOT SUFFICIENT

Combining the two statements

X = (2/3)*Y and Y = 60
i.e. X = 40 millimeters

SUFFICIENT

Answer: Option C

X=?

(1) x=$$\frac{2}{3}$$Y. [No inf about Y]

(2) Y=60 [No link between X and Y]

Put (2) in (1)
We can find the value of X

Answer: C.
