Independent events. Probability of both happening = prob(a) * prob(b)

since A = 25% even if B= 100%

.25 * 1 = .25 < .3

So A is sufficient to answer the question. No matter what B is, the probability of both occurring cannot be greater than 30%.

oops, mistake, D instead of A, agree with july

1) .25 * another prob <=.25
2) prob of B is (1-.71)=.29 (not .69) same

from st. 2 prob b should be 1-.71=.29 so it's the same case as with A

the answer should be D

I too vote for D.

Well, since we know that probabilities of each of them happening is less than 0.3 , there is no way that both of them can happen with a probability of more than 0.3. So either statement is sufficient.
