We'll translate our question into equations to understand what we need to do.
This is a Precise approach

We're told that A + B + C = $1.8 and asked if A > B and A > C.
(1) So B + C = $1.2. Say B has less than $0.6, than C must have more than $0.6.
Since this is also true the other way around, then Ann can't have the most money so the answer to our question stem is NO.
Sufficient.

(2) So A + C = $1.3. Let's try making A largest: A = $1.3 and C = 0. Works! Now let's try making A smallest - A = 0 and C = $1.3. Also works!
Insufficient.

(A) is our answer.
