From statement A
Consider the individual contributions of "n" members be a,b,c,d...n
so total AM is 505210/n
Now total contribution increased to 1225890
therefore new AM is 1225890/n
percentage increase = 42.65% (Assuming the no of members remained same)
but since we don't know anything about the no of members we can't be sure. hence insufficient.
statement 2
Clearly Insufficient.
combining 1 and 2
Sufficient.

we need both the statements to know about Total contributions and the number of members to figure out % change.
Hence c.
