Given: X = (4/5)*Y, where X and Y are the capacities of glass X and Y respectively

Statement 1:

X = 12 ounces (6*2)
Therefore, Y = (5/4)*X = 15

We also know that Glass X has 6 ounces of liquid and Glass Y has 0.75*15 ounces - Sufficient


Statement 2:
This restates the given equation - Insufficient

Answer: A
