Statement 1 says :

N= 2k-200.. Not Sufficient. Doesn't tell anything much. Also we have 2 extreme if K is high N also will be high.
If K is less, N will also be less.

Statement 2:

K>250. Not sufficient as is.

Together : We know K >250 and from taking statement 1 we can the value of N. so we can find the relationship between Karl and Nell's donation.

Official Explanation

The question is: Is k > n ?

Statement (1) is insufficient. It tells us n = 2k - 200. If k is greater than 200, then n is greater. For instance, if k = 300, then n = 2(300) - 200 = 400. However, if k is smaller than 200, the opposite is true. If k = 150, then n = 2(150) - 200 = 100. We don't know the range of values for either k or n, so we can't answer the question.

Statement (2) is also insufficient. This doesn't tell us anything about the relationship between the donations, or about Nell's amount.

Taken together, the statements are sufficient. Since we know k is greater than 250, it must be greater than 200, meaning that Nell's contribution was greater, according to the equation in (1). Choice (C) is correct.
