2/3W : 2B
2W : 6B
Ratio of paint required is 2 (White) : 6 (Blue)

From statement 1:

Lou will need twice as many gallons of paint for living room as he needed for the bedroom. But we don't know the amount of paint required for a bedroom. Hence 1 is insufficient.

From statement 2:

Lou used 4 gallons for bedroom. But, no info about living room.
Hence 2 is insufficient.

Combining both : Living room requires 8 gallons of paint.
Hence Sufficient.

C is the answer.

1) Lou will need twice as many gallons of paint for living room as he needed for the bedroom

2) Lou used 4 gallons of white paint for the guest bedroom

Statement 1: Insufficient. We need to know the quantity of paint used in the guest room only then can we calculate the gallons of paint that will be used in the living room.

Statement 2: Insufficient. We know the quantity of paint used in the guest room but to calculate the gallons of paint that will be used in the living room a relation between 2 rooms is needed.

Together they are sufficient to calculate the gallons of paint that will be used in the living room.

IMO C.

Given: \(\frac{White}{Blue} = \frac{2}{3} : 2 = 2 : 6\) --> (total units = 8)

statement 1: L.R = 2 (B.R) , but there is no given value for the B.R gallons --> insufficient

statement 2: B.R = 4 , white for B.R = \(\frac{2*4}{8} = 1\) gallon, but no given info related to the L.R --> insufficient

Combining 1 & 2: white for L.R = 2*1 = 2 --> sufficient
