Mention of Richard's salary is of no use. This is just to distract.

(1) Brian's salary is 125 percent of Richard's salary, and Amy's salary is greater than 130 percent of Richard's salary.
(2) Richard's salary is 75 percent of Amy's salary but is 80 percent of Brian's salary.

St 1: Keeping the R's salary constant, if A's salary is 130% and B salary is 125 % more than R's salary then we can say that salary of A> Salary of B
SUFFICIENT

St 2 : R=0.75A= 0.8B than salary of B > salary of A
SUFFICIENT

Hence D
