- If the questions can be answered with the help of both the statements but not with the help of either statement itself.
- If the question can not be answered even with the help of both the statements.

This can be solved using both the statements.

As from statement I, we know that L × B = 48 or B = L/48.

From statement II, we have,

L^{2} + B^{2} = 100.(using pythagoras theorem)

or, L^{2} + (L/48)^{2} =100.

L is the only unknown in this equation and can be found out.

L^{2 }= 99.95661 = 100

L = 10

**Option A is the Correct Answer.**
