This one is actually pretty straight forward if you dont get into dirty calculations :)

from question we want thousands digit of Q.

Stem 1 , it gives what Q is - whatever be the result of calculation we would have a final number from which we can tell the thousands digit. Sufficient.

Stem 2, it says when Q is rounded off to nearest ten thousand it is 3040000 . Remember we dont have Q yet. From this statement thousand digit could be anything from 0-9 (0-4 will round down to this number 5-9 will round up to this number). Clearly insufficient.

Hence Ans is A.

Hope it helps.

FROM STATEMENT - I ( SUFFICIENT )

By actual calculation we can find the Thousannds digit.

FROM STATEMENT - II ( INSUFFICIENT )

3041000 ~ 3040000
3043000 ~ 3040000

Thus we can have more than one value , so this statement is not sufficient...

So, Statement (1) ALONE is sufficient, but statement (2) alone is not sufficient to answer the question asked, answer will be (A)

Rounding is simplifying a number to a certain place value. To round the decimal drop the extra decimal places, and if the first dropped digit is 5 or greater, ROUND UP the last digit that you keep. If the first dropped digit is 4 or smaller, ROUND DOWN (keep the same) the last digit that you keep.

Example:
5.3485 rounded to the nearest tenth = 5.3, since the dropped 4 is less than 5.
5.3485 rounded to the nearest hundredth = 5.35, since the dropped 8 is greater than 5.
5.3485 rounded to the nearest thousandth = 5.349, since the dropped 5 is equal to 5.

So, according to the above 8.35y rounded to the nearest tenth will be 8.4 irrespective of the value of y.
