1. If d were rounded to the nearest hundredth, the result would be 0.44.
2.If d were rounded to the nearest thousandth, the result would be 0.436.
d = 0.43t7

Statement 1: d rounded to the nearest hundredth = 0.44
The hundredths digit of d is 3.
But rounding to nearest hundredth makes it 4.
Hence, the thousandth digit of d, i.e. ≥ 5.

Not sufficient

Statement 2: d rounded to the nearest thousandth = 0.436
The thousandths digit of d is t and the ten-thousandth digit of d is 7.
Thus, rounding to the nearest thousandth will increase the thousandth digit by 1.
Hence, the thousandth digit of d, i.e. t = (6 - 1) = 5

Sufficient

The correct answer is B.
