I) Area of the field is 72 sq. m.

II) Length and Height are in the ratio of 2:1.


a) The data in statement I alone is sufficient to answer the question.
b) The data in statement II alone is sufficient to answer the question.
c) The data either in statement I alone or statement II alone are sufficient to answer the question.
d) The data given in both I and II together are not sufficient to answer the question.
e) The data in both the statements I and II together are necessary to answer the question.

From statement 1: Area of Parallelogram = Base*height = 72 sq. m

But we don't know the base or the height of the parallelogram. therefore statement 1 is not sufficient alone. 

From statement 2: Length and Height are in the ratio of 2:1.

let length  = 2a and height = a

Therefore, area of parallelogram = 2a*a = 2a^2

but we cannot determine the perimeter using this. therefore statement 2 is not sufficient alone. 

Let see use statements 1 and 2 together, 

Area of Parallelogram = Base*height = 72 sq. m = 2a^2

a = 6

Therefore, base = 2a = 12 m, height = 6 m or base = a = 6 m, height = 2a = 12 m

But to find the perimeter we need the two sides, one of the sides is 2a but we don't know the other side or the angle between them. hence we cannot find the perimeter using both the statements together. therefore, option D is the correct answer.

Thank you very much!

Mary Bono Mack, a Republican from California, also ended up losing her seat. She was replaced by a Democrat. Mac was probably more famous for her support of the oftentimes derisively referred to as the Mickey Mouse Act or Mickey Mouse Law.More details here This law extended the copyright on materials by 20 years, which, conveniently enough, ensured that Mickey Mouse did not fall into the public domain. Being a staunch ally of the entertainment industry, Mack was also a supporter.Joe Baca and, another California Democrat, lost his seat to another Democrat. Like the other two Congress members who must now look for other employment, he was a supporter.
Representative Elton Gallegly, supporter announced that he would not be seeking reelection for his seat.
Other supporters who lost their seats include Representative Tim Holden, a Democrat from Pennsylvania and Representative Dan Quayle, a Republican from Arizona. Ars Technica points out that, while both of these representatives were supporters of they withdrew their support after the tremendous Internet-based protest that the act brought about.
While this may be good news for privacy advocates – and even cause for a little schadenfreude – Hollywood retains a cozy relationship with Congress. At the moment, the are implementing their six strikes program to discourage which, unfortunately, means that your Internet activity is likely being monitored right now.
Voting is one option for getting rid of threats to Internet privacy. VPN are another. Many users – worldwide, not only in the United States – have taken up as a means of protecting their privacy and of ensuring that no matter what kind of sweetheart deals Hollywood strikes with Congress, their Internet traffic is protected against unwarranted snooping, throttling based on the protocols that they are using or other nuisances that are still being visited upon users, even though and its Senate counterpart suffered a resounding defeat.

The formula yields the parallelogram's area A. 
Here, b stands for one base's length and h for its height. 
The lengths of a parallelogram's four sides are added to determine its perimeter.
