D.
Both I and II are not sufficient to answer 
E.
Both I and II are necessary to answer 
Answer : Option E
Explanation :
Let us name Ravi, Gagan and Nitin by R, G and N respectively.
I. R : G : N = 2 : 4 : 7.
II. N = 8750..
From I and II, we get:
When N = 7, then G = 4.
When N = 8750, then G =[\( \frac { 4 } { 7 }*8750]\) 
=5000
Thus, both I and II are needed to get the answer.
