I would think a) since only statement 1 is sufficient...

we can simplify the equation for S to S= 6x / 5n by adding the values in the denominator and then multiplying the numerator by the reciprocal...

from there, statement 1 allows us to plug in 2n for x so that S = 6x / 5n turns into S= 12n / 5n or S = 12/5 so SUFFICIENT

however, statement 2 leaves us with the variable x in the equation... S = 12x / 5 so it is not sufficient.

OA, please? DS makes me nervous...
