Hi..
If all 7 numbers are different and 6 of them have a certain MEAN, M..
This would be EQUAL to mean of 7 numbers ONLY when 7th number itself is EQUAL to M
...

Let's see the statements...

a) Range of X is greater than range of Y
This means the 7th number is either greater than or less than the 6 numbers in set Y..
So the 7 number cannot be EQUAL to mean of 6 numbers..
Ans is NO

Sufficient

b) Sum of all the numbers in set X< Sum of all the numbers in set Y
Clearly a lower number /7 will be less than greater number/6..
Clearly mean of Y>mean of X..
Ans is again NO

Sufficient

D
