Let me see...

suppose state has 100 female interns 100 male interns...and each facility has 40 interns

facility Woman Men
lockw 22 18 <---suppose its 18 then...
y 21 19
x 21 19
w 21 19
z 15 25 <-- then all the numbers add up, if lockwood has more than 18 the number on mens colum exceeds 100..

total 100 100

1) statement 1 doesnt mean much...

so statement 2) basically tell us that lockwood has the highest number of female interns..which is sufficient, cause then we can build out the colum i just did..

B it is..

This one is strange. Basically, I got C is you assume that the percentage is a "whole" number. Otherwise, I get E.

It's not E

yep it's B, there have to be a minimum of 5 facilities, so the one with maximum % of females will have less than 20% of males.
