D:

A: x- y = 80 ..also we have y /x = 5/6 => y = 5x/6

x - 5/6x = 80 => x = 480 and so y will be 400

A is suff.
----------
B:total computer is 880 .. and we have y/x : 5/6 means 11Z = 880 => Z = 80

so x will be 480 and y will be 400

Thanks

Y = 5Z, X= 6Z

TOTAL COMPUTERS = 11Z, WHAT IS Z

FROM 1

6Z - 5Z = 80...........SUFF

FROM 2

11Z = 880.....SUFF

D is my answer
