Option 1 will give you total french and spanish students but not the number of girls who took spanish.
Option 2 is sufficient

stat 1 : no info about total number of french students

stat 2 : 3/4 of the 160 french students are female.. so 1/4 are male.
also 240 speak spanish.. hence number of females speaking spanish can be deduced,,
