Statement 1: $$n^2 = x+4x+5n = 5(x+n)$$. We can substitute the value of $$n^2$$ to get the value of the expression. Hence Sufficient

Statement 2: $$x=n$$. on substituting the value of $$x$$ in the expression $$\frac{n^2}{(n+n)} = \frac{n}{2}$$. But we don't know the value of $$n$$. Hence Insufficient

Option A
