St1: If one number is 5, the other number may be 2.5 or 10. --> Greater number = 5 or 10 --> Not Sufficient

St2: x + 2x = 15 --> x = 5
So one number is 5 and other number is 10. --> Greater number is 10 --> Sufficient

Answer: B

My take is B.

(1) one number is 5. It can be the smaller number or larger number. Hence not sufficient.
(2) Sum of the numbers is 15 - which can be written x + 2x = 15 Hence x=5 and 2x = 10. Larger number is 10. Sufficient.

Hope it helps!!!

I notice that gmat sets up traps most of the time, why is that necessary to run a business.
