Option C is the correct answer.

### Option Analysis

Let x be the amount of apple juice to be added.

Let y be the amount of cranberry juice in the container.

Question is x?

Statement I is insufficient: Given x = (3/2) y We don’t know anything about the total litres. So not sufficient.

Statement II is insufficient: No info about x.

Given that y = 5

Together I and II,

x = (3/2)*5 = 7.5

So sufficient.
