I get A. We have to find out if l >=2j , where l is lisas salary, and j is julie's salary.
from stat 1, l=j+20,000, in other words, is j+20,000 >=2j > we get that 20,000 >=j. So, witht this known, no matter what number you pick for j, if you add 20,000 to it to get lisa's salary, you will see that its always at least twice as large.
from stat 2, you only know lisas salary and nothing about julies. insuff

I think the OA wrong!

Question: L >= 2J (1). L = J + 20 J + 20 >= 2J J > 20 But not sure about Lisa. Insufficient
(2) L < 40 From this statement alone we cannot identify what is J's salary. So insufficient
Combining (1) and (2)
L = J + 20; L < 40 and J > 20, Comining this we can identify the solution; IMO C
