St I
Beth saved 1/3 of her earnings last month and spent half of the remainder on rent
Let x be the salary of Beth
400 =(1/2)*(2/3)*x => x = 1200 ------------Sufficient

St II
Beth earned twice as much this month as last month ------------Insufficient

Hence Option A is correct

Rent = $400

1) =>

Rent = 2/3 * 1/2 * Earnings
Earnings = $1200

Sufficient.

2) => Not sufficient.

Answer - A.
