Statement 1:
Tells only about cats who won more than 2 rings, but does not tell you about cats who did not win or won just 1 ring. So insufficient.

Statement 2:
Tells only about cats who did not win at all, but does not tell you about cats who won just 1 ring or more than 2 rings. So insufficient

Combining both of them we have
Cats who won more than 2 rings = 25%
Cats who won no rings = 25%
Cats who won 1 ring = 100 - 25 - 25 + 25 = 75 (+25 is for cats who won more than 2 rings also won 1 ring)
But thing is with both statements together we can answer how many cats won 1 ring. So asnwer is C.
