At least 100 students at a certain high school study Japanese. If 4 percent of the students at the school who study French also study Japanese, do more students at the school study French than Japanese.

1, 16 students at the school study both French and Japanese.

2. 10 percent of the students at the school who study Japanese also study French.

B for me too. You don't really need to know how many students actually study both.

From A. "16 students at the school study both French and Japanese"
and from Q, "4 percent of the students at the school who study French also study Japanese" So, 16 is 4% of students who study French. From this we can get french studying students and hence compare

From B, "10 percent of the students at the school who study Japanese also study French." Ah! can't say no of japanese students.

So, D is ruled out.
