=> Condition 1)
Since the minimum profit of 3 products is \$2.1, the total profit of them is greater than or equal to \$2.1 x 3 = \$6.3, which is greater than \$6.
Thus this is sufficient.

Condition 2)
Since the 3nd largest profit is at least \$3.1, the sum of the first and the second products is at least \$6.2, which is greater than \$6.
Thus this is sufficient too.

1) The least profit from the sales of the 3 products is at least \$2.1
2) The 2nd largest profit from the sales of the 3 products is at least \$3.1.

In the current format the answer should be B and NOT A.

Note statement 1 : The least profit from the sales of the 3 products is at least \$2.1
it DOES NOT say: The least profit from the sales of any ONE product is at least \$2.1and all products were sold at a profit.(Ver.2)
IF the statement were as given in Ver.2 then it could have been sufficient.

The least profit from the sales of the 3 products is at least \$2.1 , that means we are taking the profit of 3 products together. So together the profit from the 3 products could be \$4 or \$5 and answer would be no or the profit could be \$6.1 or \$10 and answer would be yes. Hence statement one is insufficient IMO.

Statement 2 : The 2nd largest profit from the sales of the 3 products is at least \$3.1 , so the largest profit will be more than 3.1 hence total profit from these 2 products we will more than \$6.2 . Hence B is sufficient .
