DS: Length of each side of regular Hexagon
Concept : If we know the length of side of regular hexagon , we can calculate its diagonals.

Statement 1: Shortest distance between A and B = Side of hexagon + diagonal of hexagon(which is again related to side)
So, we can easily calculate the length of the side of the hexagon.
SUFFICIENT

Statement 2: We can even calculate the distance between A and B such that the straight-line does not enter inside either hexagon with the length of side.
SUFFICIENT

1

Side of Hexagon = 2S

St.1) 2S + 2S + 2S = 6
S = 1

Sufficient

St.2) S$$\sqrt{3}$$ + S$$\sqrt{3}$$ + 2S + 2S = 4 + 2$$\sqrt{3}$$
4S + 2S$$\sqrt{3}$$ = 4 + 2$$\sqrt{3}$$
S = 1

Sufficient
