When you make a 2*2 grid for this question, you will notice that not much information is given.

That said, the answer is E

-------------PW------NPW
LA-----------
NLA---------
--------------5--------10-----------15

E

The answer to this question is E.
the answer to this question can be found out by just understanding the statements carefully without solving anything.
In statement 1.
nothing is said about luxury appliances so A and D ruled out. Easy.
The trick lies in statement 2 ; Each car having luxury appliances had power windows as well but it is not necessary each power window car has the luxury appliances so both B & C also ruled out.
