(1) The total number of apples and oranges Steve bought was 8. (2) Steve bought seven times as many oranges as apples. Per qsn., $$0.6*A + 0.5*O = 4.1$$ => $$6A + 5O = 41$$ To achieve 41, we can have either $$6*6 + 5*1$$ OR $$6*1 + 5*7$$. Stmt 1 : $$A+O = 8$$ This matches the calculation : 6*1 + 5*7 = 41 We also could've used linear eqn in 2 variables to solve. Sufficient. Stmt 2 : $$7A = O$$ OR $$7A - O = 0$$ This again is in line with the calculation : $$6*1 + 5*7 = 41$$ Hence D.
