Statement 1:
Clearly insufficient as we have no clue about Charley's height

Statement 2:
This tells us of a relation between the height's go Hector and Charlie.
Note that we do not need to calculate the exact heights go Hector and Charlie.
We just need the reaction between heights.
Sufficient

Correct Option: B
