Translation
to find the answer, we need:
1# exact value of either x or y or both
2# another equation in x and y

Statement analysis
St 1: x =4y+1 or x-4y = 1. same equation as given in the problem statement. INSUFFICIENT
St 2: y = x/2 + 1. substitution y in the equation in the question, we get x -2x -4 = 1 or x = -3. ANSWER

Option B
