Statement 2 is obvious enough.

Statement 1: Because we know that # only represents addition, subtraction and multiplication, and NOT division, statement 1 tells us that # must represent subtraction. 1#k and k#1 will be the same if # represents multiplication or addition.

I get the answer as E.

If k, l and M = 0, then the two sides of equation are equal.
For other numbers, they are unequal.

Well, but the question is

"is k#(L+m)=(k#L)+(k#m) for all numbers k, L, and m". And the answer is NO.
This means each statement is sufficient. Hence changing my answer to D.
