Option 2 : If the data in **statement II alone is sufficient** to answer the question, while the data in statement I alone are not sufficient to answer the question.

Calculation:

Let the Marked Price of Article A be 'x'

From statement I

⇒ The Selling Price of Article A is 25% of the Selling Price of Article B, here we cannot determine the marked price of article A

so, the statement I is not sufficient to answer the question

From statement II

⇒ C.P = Rs. 300, discount = 25%, loss = 10%

⇒ (300 × 0.9) = x × 0.75

here we can determine the marked price of article A

so, statement II is sufficient to answer the question

∴ the data in statement II alone is sufficient to answer the question, while the data in statement I alone are not sufficient to answer the question.
