D I guess coz
Using either statement alone I can arrive at an equation which shows c is not equal to b/c^3

Give : a^3,b^3,c^3 >0 hence a,b,c>0

F1 ) c = b / (ac)^2 since a,b,c>0 C^3*a^2 = B Suff

F2 ) C = B^1/3 / A^2/3
cubing on both sides

c^3 = B/a^2 since a,b,c >0 Suff

Hence D

1. c= b/(ac)^2
2. c=b^1/3/a^2/3


Is \(a^2=b/c^3\) ?

St I
\(c= b/(ac)^2 => c = b/(a^2*c^2) => a^2 = b / c^3\) ------------Sufficient

St II
\(c=b^{1/3}/a^{2/3}\)
cubing both sides, we have
\(c^3=b/a^2 => a^2 = b/c^3\) ---------------Sufficient

Hence option D is correct
