Suppose,
households contain only cat = C
households contain only dog = D
households contain both = B

So, A + B + C = 250;
Again, 75 households dont have any dogs; i.e. C = 75;

(1) says 150 households dont have any cats; i.e. D = 150;
Therefore, B = 250 - (150+75) = 25; Hence, Sufficient.

(2) says 100 households have cats; i.e. B + C = 100;
Therefore, B = (100 - 75) = 25; Hence, Sufficient.

Answer D.
