In the figure, X and Y are the centers of two opposite faces of the cube.
So XY will be equal to side , let assume it to be ''a''.
Statement 1: Volume is given , Volume of cube = cube of a , so we can findout the value of a
Statement 2 : Surface area is given , surface area of cube = 6 * square of a , from this also we can find out the a
From both statement individually, we can find a (XY).
So Answer would be D

Sufficient.
