(1) x = 2/3
(2) x = 2y


Stmt 1:x=2/3
Subsituting will not remove y,so R is not a singular value.
Insuff

Stmt 2:Substitute:
R=8*2y/3y ....>R=16/3 ...singular value
Suff

Ans:B

(1) x = 2/3
(2) x = 2y



R = 8x/3y

Statement 1: x = 2/3. but we don't know about y. NOT sufficient.

Statement 2: x = 2y.

R = 8x/3y

R = 8*2y/3y

R = 16/3.

Thus, B is the correct answer.
