Stmt 1: L = 2+ W
LW can't be found. So insufficient,

Stmt 2: 2(L+W) = 16
LW can't be found. So insufficient,

Both together Sufficient to find L and W.

Option C according to me. But OA is A, what am I missing? :?

Question: Area of Rectangular floor
L * B =?

Statement 1:
L=B+2
We cannot find area Not sufficient

Statement 2:
Perimeter of X is 16
So Given 2( L+B) =16
L+B=8
If L=1, B=7 area =7
If L=2 B = 6 area =12
Not sufficient

Combine:

L+B=8 and L=B+2
We get a definite answer for area..
Hence sufficient
C
