R+ B =190

Statement 1 :-
R -B = 0.1R
0.9R = B
R/B = 10/9
R/190-R = 10/9
Which will give us unique value for R and B
Sufficient

Statement 2 :-
9/19* 190 = 90 sold by Bob
Sufficient

Hence D

VERITAS PREP OFFICIAL SOLUTION:

Statement 1: Let R be the number of sales Raina made, and B be the number of sales Bob made.

Your goal is to define the following:

Raina made how many more sales than Bob = R – B = ?

And you know from the question that:

Total number of sales by Raina and Bob = R + B = 190

From Statement 1 you learn:

R - B = 0.1R

With the two equations, it is possible to solve for R and B and determine R - B:

R + B = 190

R - B = 0.1R, so combine the two equations to get:

2R = 190 + 0.1R

1.9R = 190

So R = 100 and B = 90, meaning that R - B = 10.

SUFFICIENT

2) Statement 2 can be translated into:

B = (9/19)(B + R)

And since you know that B + R = 190 you have:

B = (9/19)(190)

So, again, B = 90 and R = 100, so R - B = 10.

SUFFICIENT
