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.

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
