U r not taking into account the fact that there may be some members who are common in both the clubs. Without that information, even (1) and (2) combined cannot give the right answer. So the answer must be E.

Cheers! Dnt lose ur sleep. getting 26 right out of 28 is something to celebrate of
to solve. Simply because I think they give wrong answer. Seriously. I encountered this question after getting 26 of the first 28 problems right. And I still don't see how they come to their answer:
If the drama club and music club are combined, what percent of the combined membership will be male?
(1) Of the 16 members of the drama club, 15 are male
(2) Of the 20 members of the music club, 10 are male
Go ahead. I dare you. Warning. You may lose your Saturday trying to get this right.
How the hell is this not C?
Are the GMAT people so politically correct now, that I cant assume a group consists of two sexes, but rather I have to take into account hermaphodites and transgenders?
They say the answer is E.
