And: D
Both statement alone sufficient to ans the question..

given r > 120% of s

from 1: minimum value of s is 60 so r must be greater than 120 % of 60 which is = 72 (Sufficient)
from 2: given r-s= 40 means 1.20s-s=40 so .2s=40: so s=200 thus r>70 (sufficient)

Both alone sufficient to ans.

Given that
\(r > \frac{120}{100} s\) ; \(r > 70 ?\)


Statement 1

\(60 < s < 80\)

For min value of s = 60, \(\frac{120}{100}* 60\) => r > 72

Sufficient


Statement 2

\(r - s = 40\)

=> \(s = r- 40\)

=> \(r > \frac{120}{100}* (r-40)\)

=> \(r > \frac{6}{5} r - 48\)

=> \(r < 48 * 5\)

But we don't know if r > 70, hence Insufficient

1
St1 : 60 < s < 80

Since r>1.2s, considering the lowest value of s,
r>1.2*60 or r >72
is r>70 with 60 < s < 80 => Yes
Sufficient

St2 : r - s = 40

Now r>1.2s
or r-s>0.2s
or 40>.2s
or s<200

Since there is no lower limit, and s can be zero also, r can take values on both side of 70

Hence insufficient

Given r>6s/5

I) for s=60
r>6*60/5
r>72
So for other values r is surely greater than 70
Sufficient

II) r-s=40

R can be 30 s can be -10
Or
R can be 80 and s be 40
Many possibilities
So insufficient

A is answer
