E

We need to find the actual number of balls of each color and/or odd/even.

statement 1 is obviously not enough because it does not give the number of white balls

statement 2 is not enough because you can have (10 white balls) - (5 evens) = 6 OR 15 white balls - 10 evens = 5 (which is 20%)

Put them together, still not enough to solve because we still don't know how many white balls there are.

I would guess E but I am not really sure of any method to get around this. I would appreciate if someone could make a detailed explanation.

the answer is E.

question: what's the combined number of white balls and balls with even numbers = #(white) + #(even) - #(white and even)

1) there are not white balls with even numbers (#white and even) = 0
2) the number of white balls is the number of even numbers + 5: #(white) = #(even) + 5

1&2: insufficient #white = 6, #even = 1 or #white = 7 and # even = 2
