Given
Let the Ranges of two sets be RS and RT and the combined range be RST.

Is RST > RS+RT?

stmt1:
HT > HS.
S = 10 ........20 RS = 10
T = 15.........25 RT = 10
RST = 15 here RST < RS + RT
let S remain the same and R = 21 ......25 then RST > RS+RT. Insufficient.

Stmt2:
LT > HS then definetly HT > HS then definetly RST > RS + RT.
Sufficient.

Ans:B

Its B
I did it this way
say, S={s1,.........,20} ; T={21,............,t2}
where {S,T} ={s1,...........t2}
now we have to prove t2-s1>(20-s1)+(t2-21)
which is TRUE-hence B alone is SUFFICIENT
