Ans: A

‘59’ means ‘injurious habit’ and ‘157’ means ‘stop bad habit’(from I). Thus, the common code number ‘5’ stands for common word ‘habit’. So, ‘9’ represents ‘injurious’. Hence, I is sufficient. Also, ‘59’ means ‘injurious habit’ and ‘839’ means ‘smoking is injurious’. Thus, the common code number ‘9’ stands for common word ‘injurious’. So, ‘5’ represents ‘habit’. Thus, II is also sufficient.
