Let Bill read \(x\) papers and Tim \(y\) in \(60\) minutes

Statement 1: implies \(x=2y\). two variable, one equation hence insufficient

Statement 2: implies \(x=y+30\). two variable, one equation hence insufficient

Combining 1 & 2 we have two variable and two linear equations. Hence can be solved to find the value of \(x\) & \(y\). Sufficient

Option C
