From statement 1:

lathe machine takes 28 seconds to manufacture 20 screws. But no info about the time taken to manufacture bolts.
Insufficient.

From statement 2:

lathe machine 1.5 times more time to manufacture one bolt than to manufacture one screw.
Here, only ratio of time taken is given. Clearly insufficient.

Combining both:

1 screw is manufactured in 20/28 sec or 5/7 sec.
1 bolt takes $$\frac{3}{2}(\frac{20}{28})$$ sec = 15/14 sec.

then 1000 bolts = $$1000*\frac{15}{14}$$ = $$500*\frac{15}{7}$$ seconds.

C is the answer.
