Let no. of students who do only backstroke be B.
Let no. of students who do only crawl be C.
Let no. of students who do both be X.

Given,
B+C+X=120
C = 30

And B+X = 120 - C = 120 - 30 = 90

S1. Of the 120 members, 72 do not swim the crawl. ---> B=72.

So, X = 90 - B = 90 - 72 = 18

Sufficient!

S2. A total of 48 members swim the crawl.

So, C+X = 48

X = 48 - C = 48 - 30 = 18

Sufficient!

Hence, answer will be D.

120 members here can be divided into three types:

Those who swim only the backstroke (and not crawl) - lets call them B
Those who swim only the crawl (and not backstroke) - already given to be as 30
Those who can swim both backstroke and crawl - lets call them S (we have to find this value)

So we have B+30+S = 120 Or B+S = 90 Or S = 90-B. Now lets look at the statements

Statement 1. 72 do not swim the crawl, thus they swim only backstroke. B = 72. This gives S = 90-72 = 18.
Sufficient

Statement 2. In total, 48 members swim the crawl. This includes those who can only crawl (and not backstroke) and also those who can crawl as well as backstroke.
This means 30+S = 48
S = 18. Sufficient.

Hence D

(1) Of the 120 members, 72 do not swim the crawl.
(2) A total of 48 members swim the crawl.



Total members = 120

Numbers of member who do not swim backstroke = 30, so the numbers of member who swim backstroke = 120 - 30= 90

Statement 1: number of members who swim the crawl = 120 - 72 = 48
Therefore the numbers of members who crawl as well as backstroke = 90 + 48 - 120 = 18(sufficient)

Statement 2: from this statement we know the numbers of members swim the crawl = 48 , same as A we can derive the numbers who swim backstroke as well as crawl(sufficient)

Hence the correct answer D
