The difference between the number of people who own both car and bike and the number of people who own neither = 100.



total = 500
(1) b = 150 and c = 250..
you can say that the ans can be anything from 0 to 150 and neither will be 100 to 250 accordingly
insuff

(2) neither -both = 100..
Nothing much
insuff

combined..
statement II actually comes from statement I itself..
total = 500, b=150 and c = 250, say both is 0, neither = 500-150-250+0=100
so difference is 100-0=100

total = 500, b=150 and c = 250, say both is 100, neither = 500-150-250+100=200
so difference is 200-100=100
..
but BOTH can vary from 0 to 150
