From statement 1:

The number of students increased by 110 percent from 1995 to 2005 at the school.

2.1x = 1050.

x = 1050/2.1 = 500 students in 1995.

Enough data to calculate percent increase from 2000 to 2005.
A is sufficient.

From statement 2:

There were 500 students in 1995 at the school.

So a 50% increase in 2000. Students become 750 in 2000.
Enough data to calculate percent increase from 2000 to 2005.
B is sufficient.

D is the answer.
