If E is the event of picking a ball with even number and W is the event of picking a ball with white color, then p(WUE) is required.

From stmt1: p(W intersection E) is 0.
Hence, p(WUE) = p(W) + p(E).....insufficient.

From stmt2: p(W) - p(E) = 0.2....again, with this, it is not possible to get p(W) + p(E). Hence, answer should be E.
