(2) Micah spent 50% of his take-home pay on living expenses, and saved 25% of the remainder.


We are given that Micah saved an absolute amount equal to $300 last month. And the ask is to find total take home pay.

(1) Does not tell us anything about the total pay as there could be other components & spending/savings to total pay other than rent + savings. Not suff

(2) Tells us Micah saved 25% of the remainder ( which is 50% after he spent 50% on living expenses - could be rent & other things). Sufficient as 25% of 50% of take home pay is $300 hence we can find the take home pay.

Hence Option (B) is correct.
