let 1,000,000 = A
If the population of city Y first exceeded A on 1 January 1963 then the population of X first exceeded A in 1967
If the population of city Y first exceeded A on 1 December 1963 then the population of X first exceeded A in 1968

not sufficient

B) The population of City Z first exceeded 1,000,000 in 1930, and the population of City X first exceeded 1,000,000 37 years after the population of City Z first exceeded 1,000,000.

Seems sufficient

B
