Let weight of each large button = x, weight of each small button = y. We have to find (20x+32y)

Statement 1. y=4x/9.
So required weight = 20x + 32*4/9x
But still we don't know x so insufficient.

Statement 2. 4x = 9y or y = 4x/9
Same as first statement. Insufficient.

Even after combining, we have y = 4x/9. But we don't know what is x or y. So Insufficient. Answer is E
