IMO C.

Average = sum of observations/ number of observations

So a+b+c = 17-d as per Statement 1.
Question arises what is D? So ! alone is insufficient, ruling out A and D.

Statement 2
d=5, on its own it is insufficient. D is not defined by question stem. B is not possible.

So (1)+(2) a+b+c = 17-5 = 12, that works
average = 12/3 =4 as per formula defined above.

C is the correct answer, hence proved.
