(1) In 2001, Company A had 60 percent more employees than Company B had in 2000.
(2) In 2001, Company B had 20 percent more employees than it had in 2000


Note that we aren't asked for a specific number, but a ratio.
We'll see which statements give us a ratio/percent, a Logical approach.

(1) We need to compare 2001 to 2001, not 2001 to 2000.
Insufficient.

(2) This gives no information about company A.
Insufficient.

Combined. We can now use (2) to compare between B in 2001 and B in 2000 and then use (1) to compare between B in 2001 with A in 2001, which is what we are asked to do.
Sufficient.

(C) is our answer.
