What is the price of bananas?

I. With Rs. $84$, I can buy $14$ bananas and $35$ oranges.

II. If price of bananas if reduced by $50$% then we can buy $48$ bananas in Rs. $12$.

1. if the questions can be answered with the help of both the statements but not with the help of either statement itself.
2. if the question can not be answered even with the help of both the statements.
3. if the question can be answered with the help $0$ statement $II$ alone
4. if the question can be answered with the help of statement $I$ alone

14 B + 35 O = 84  .... from I

48 * $\frac{B}{2}$ = 12  ... from II

On solving equation II, we get old price of each banana as 0.5 and new price is half of 0.5 which is 0.25.

So statement II alone is sufficient to get the old/new price of banana.
