I might be falling for the Joe Bloggs answer here but:
C

given (2) gives us a common denominator if we were to require adding 1/each = 1
and (1) gives us the derived numerator = 1
Thus we have 1/1 as the answer.

1) a+b+c = 1;
2) abc = 1.

Solution: Let's simplify the equation first. This leads us to (bc+ac+ab)/abc;
Neither statement one, not two gives us sufficient info to find values for the given equation. Combining two statements together, we get three variables and only two equations. Thus, E is the correct answer.
