Let's take the horizontal lines as 1 to 11.
Stat 1: Total 5 feet long then total 12*5 = 60 inches, given each segment is of the same length , i.e. we have 10 boxes then each box is 6 inches...Sufficient.
Stat 2: When x is 18, then first three boxes are each 6 inches in length. We can take the difference between y and x...Sufficient..
IMO option D.
OA please..will correct if I missed anything.
