Given L and b and h. we need to know the radius of the can.
Statement 1:
As we know the radius we can find the value of K
SUFF
Statement 2:
we know that vertically 4 layers. but we don't know about the no of cans horizontally and we are not even given the radius
so there can be different solutions
Not suff
A is the winner.
please correct me if I am wrong

Hi,

From Statement 1, is it right to assume that the maximum cans that can be accommodated along the length of the box is 4 and the max cans along the width are 3?

Hence the total cans that can be placed in the box are 4*3*4 = 48?
