statement 1 : r=3s=2t=6u

We know that each of them is a single digit number. The only possible value for u is 1, if we take 2,3.... onwards, r will be 12, 18.....
so u = 1, r=6, s=2, t=3

Suff.

Statement 2:
ru = st
1*8 = 2*4
1*6 = 2*3

Not Suff.

r=6u..and since r and u represent non-ZERO DIGITs..u can only be 1..r=6..

1) rstu each is single digit so u can not be greater than 1. If u is greater than 1 then the value will become double digit number (12, 18, 24 etc.) which is not possible.
so, r = 3s = 2t = 6 x 1
r = 6, s = 2, t = 3 and u = 1
statement 1 is sufficient.
2) ru = st give no information about the value. insufficient.

Ans. A

Recognizing that r,s,t,u are single digit numbers...we can safely assume that u equals to 1.....leading to values of all other digits....making statement A sufficient....in case of statement B....many values of r,s,t,u can be found resulting in insufficient data....thus statement A is sufficient for the answer
