IMHO, the problem statement "Malik’s recipe for 4 servings of a certain dish requires 3/2 cups of pasta." is not clear enough.

Does it mean that total 3/2 cups of pasta is required for 4 servings or does it means that each serving requires 3/2 cups, resulting in total 6 cups of pasta?

Is Ans C.... Coz from ques we know malik need 1.5 cups of pasta for 4 servings.

stmt 1:- insuff because we don't know number of servings malik prepared last time.

Stmt 2:- 6 cups pasta were required, so total of 16 servings by using simple cross multiplication, still this statement is insuff.

Combining 1& 2 we can get the ans.

Ah!! Somehow I assumed the 4 serving information as the last time preparation information.
