B

If all attend, 14 have to pass to make it a policy

A) Insuff.
B) If 7 voted against, even at full strength only 13 could have voted for it and hence the resolution wouldn't have passed.

is there a trap?

I would say D...

1 10 directors voted for it ..this is less than 2/3 of the 20 Suff
2 7 voted against it so 13 voted for it...again its less than 2/3 of 20..suff

actually i've already seen that problem but i think that now there is the word "at least" that wasn't in the original problem before

in that case i would go for E

we don't know the number of directors....

ok, I am not understanding this I think...

A minimum of 20 directors are required to be present.

A. 10 directors voted for the resolution. Even if a minimum of 20 directors are present, this would mean that 10 directors voted 'against' the resolution. So, 10 for and 10 against. But, the premise is that 2/3 majority (14) must be vote 'for' it to become policy. So, A itself is sufficient to tell us that resolution did not become policy.

B. Seven direcors voted against the resolution. This tells us nothing, and is hence insufficient.

So, answer should be A.

total members: 20
quorum: 10

in that case, OA is D. I dont have OE at this point. BTW, my ans was wrong (C) :)

Duttsit,

I think in Kaplan the stem is "20 members" and not "at least 20 members". If it is clearly 20 memebers, Oa is D. If "at least 20 members" it is E
