(a) n is between 0 and 1.
(b) 7/16 is 3/8 more then n


Statement 1: Obviously not sufficient.
Statement 2: 7/16 is 3/8 more than n so it means that 7/16 = 3/8 + n
You can get the value of n hence it is sufficient.
Answer (B)

The question was just trying to trick you to take statement 1 into consideration as well and mark the answer as (C). Obviously n is between 0 and 1 but you do not need to use that information, You anyway get the exact value of n from statement 2 alone.

And yes, it is sub 600 level question.
