Statement 1: Insufficient as for the diamond and spade can take on multiple values. E.g. Diamond = 1,Spade = 7, etc.
Statement 2: Spade can only take on the value of 1. Therefore, Diamond = 7. Sufficient.

That's why i said before,i dont like cards You are absolutely correct, general definition of a digit is values comprising of 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 Thank you.
