1. each whisky bottle weighs 1.2 pounds.
2. each vodka bottle weighs 0.7 pounds.

1 and 2 together are sufficient:

1.2*x + 0.7*y = 8.1 => 12x + 7y = 81 => y :: 3 => y = 3, 6, 9, ...

Moreover, y is odd, since 81-12x is odd.

a) if y = 3 => x = 5,

b) y = 9 => x = 1.5 - non-integer.

C.

1) INSUFFICIENT
2) INSUFFICIENT

Together, 12X + 7Y = 81.

X and Y must be integers since we're dealing with bottles.

Y is odd since 81 - 12X is odd. (Odd - Even = Odd)

The only combination possible is X = 5 and Y = 3. So there are 8 bottles.
