statement 1 would water down to n*(n-1)/2-n =15 and that gives a quadratic equation with two roots one being positive(accepted), other being negative (discarded) and thus, results in a unique solution -> sufficient.
Statement 2 could easily be proved sufficient => answer option D

the sum of the measures of the exterior angles of a polygon is always 360. Hence ii point suggests it will be hexagon.

Ans D.

Exterior angle is 60 degree . hence hexagonal ..sufficient

IMO B

the first statement will not yield in any "integral value" of n

SO answer should be B

Waiting for expert opinion

@Buneul plz comment.

Thanks
