Its E.
1: Not enough as other two side not known
2: Not enough as other two side not known
Combining: Still we do not know what is the length of third side 16 or 20 hence not enough.
Therefore E.
Whats the OA.

IMO E.

Both statements are not enough.

What is the perimeter of isosceles triangle MNP?

(1) MN = 16. We only know the length of one side. Not sufficient.
(2) NP = 20. We only know the length of one side. Not sufficient.

(1)+(2) If MN=MP=16 and NP=20 then the perimeter would be 16+16+20=52 but if MN=16 and NP=MP=20 then the perimeter would be 16+20+20=56. Not sufficient.
