(1) b − c = 2
(2) a = 3

Quad equation is $$ax^2+bx+c=0$$...
SUM of roots=p+q=$$\frac{-b}{a}$$....(i)
PRODUCT of roots=pq=$$\frac{c}{a}$$...(ii)

Now (p+1)(q+1)=pq+p+q+1...
Substitute value from i and ii
$$\frac{c}{a}+\frac{-b}{a}+1=1+\frac{c-b}{a}$$

Statement I gives b-c and statement II gives value of a...
So combined
Sufficient

C
