E

Let Rate of first = x and that of second = y

St1: either x= 250 or y = 250. No information about the other. INSUFF to find the total rate (x+y)

St2: either x = 2y or y = 2x. INSUFF to find the total rate (x+y)

Combined:

if x = 250 then y can be 500 or 125
if y = 250 then x can be 500 or 125

So INSUFF to find the total rate (x+y)

I agree it is E.

1/c = 1/c1 + 1/c2;

1> inssuf as only c1 is given

2. insufficient as there are no real numbers.

1 and 2 insuff as

if c1 = 250 c2 can be 125 or 500. yielding different results.

therefore E.
