If seven director's voted against the bill, then a 2/3rds majority is impossible.

I) Not sufficient

II) Sufficient
We don't need to know how many voted for, because even if all the other directors voted for it, it is still 13 vs 7
which is not 2/3 majority (14 vs 7 is)

Ok And what if only 9 voted? what about a quorum of 10?

With 7 votes against, what would be the minimum number of votes in favour to attain the 2/3 majority?

when quorum is not there it will necessarily fail, thus B is correct
