In a Yes/No Data Sufficiency questions, statement is sufficient if the answer is “always yes” or “always no” while a statement is insufficient if the answer is "sometimes yes" and "sometimes no". The first statement is not sufficient because we can get both YES (for m=3) and NO (for m=4) answers to the question.
And am I correct in assuming that we can't consider both the statements together for this question?
Based on the questions you ask you don't understand what a data sufficiency question is about. After you get that the first statement is NOT sufficient and the second statement IS sufficient, you do NOT need to consider the statements together. You already have an answer, which is B:
Statement (2) ALONE is sufficient, but statement (1) alone is not sufficient to answer the question asked.
My advice is to brush up fundamentals and only then attempt the questions.
