My problem with this question was that it only says that each employee has an office or a cubicle, but does not say that the number of offices and cubicles is equal to the number of employees. So, there could be more offices and cubicles than employees. Am I jsut splitting hairs?

1) Employees:cubicles = 3:2
We know 1 part of employees will sit in offices and 2 parts in cubicles. Percentage = 33.3%. Sufficient.

2) Insufficient. Nothing useful here.

I go with A
