First statement: x + y = 24.
case1: let x=11 then y = 13 and the median of the three numbers would be 12.
case2: let x=12.5 then y = 11.5 and the median of the three numbers would be 12.
In any such case, the median of the three numbers would be 12. ->Sufficient.

Second statement: y=6.
No knowledge of the value of x. - > Not sufficient.

Answer: A

=> Condition 1)
If x = y = 12, then the median of them is 12.
If x < y, then the median of them 12, since x < 12 < y.
If x > y, then the median of them 12, since y < 12 < x.
This is sufficient.

Condition 2)
Since we don’t know x, we don’t identify their median.
This is not sufficient.

Ans: A
