(1) n = 10
(2) m + 10 = n

Statement 1, n=10 gives us 10+k = m, so k can be anything depending on value of m, so insufficient

Statement 2, m+10=n when put in the stem gives us m+10+k=m or k+10 = 0 or K=-10. So, sufficient.

We can rephrase the question as if k = n-m

Statement 1

n =10

k = 10-m. Not Sufficient

Statement 2

m+10 = n

We know that ,

k=n-m

Therefore from statement 2 we get k =10 . Sufficient

Option B is the answer.

If n + k = m, what is the value of k ?

$$n + k = m$$ --> $$k=m-n=?$$

(1) n = 10 --> $$k=m-n=m-10$$. Not sufficient.

(2) m + 10 = n --> $$m-n=-10$$, so $$k=-10$$. Sufficient.
