(1) 15 percent of B is 375.
(2) B is 40 percent of 6,250.


we are asked to find out 20% of B. in order to do so we have to know the value of B.
statement: 375 is 15 % of B.
so, (375/15)*20

statement 2: B is 40% of 6250
so B = 0.4*6250*0.2

so, the correct answer is D.

For finding 20 percent of B, you need the value of B.

1) 15 percent of B = 375
-> \(\frac{15}{100}*B = 375\)
-> B = 2500

Sufficient

2) B is 40% of 6250
->\(B =\frac{40}{100}*6250\)
-> B = 2500

Sufficient

Option D
