From statement 1:

Given 5x = 15.
x = 3.
Bananas = 4x = 12.
Sufficient.

From statement 2:

5x-4x = 3
x = 3.
Bananas = 4x = 12.
Sufficient.

D is the answer.

3x:4x:5x

Bananas = 4x

Statement 1)

If I know 5x = 15 I find the value of x and hence be able to answer how many bananas.

Sufficient.

Statement 2)

It tells us 5x-4x = 3.

So we can find the value of bananas.

Sufficient.

Answer choice D
