If 25% of a company's employees are women older than 30, what percent of the men employees are 30 or younger?

Half of the women employees are 30 or younger

35% of the company's employees are men of 30 or younger

Statement (1) ALONE is sufficient, but Statement (2) ALONE is not sufficient

Statement (2) ALONE is sufficient, but Statement (1) ALONE is not sufficient

BOTH statements TOGETHER are sufficient, but NEITHER statement ALONE is sufficient

I think the answer to this question is incorrect in the tests. I think it E but its given as C. Can somebody help ?

C is indeed the right answer.

To find the "percent of the men employees 30 or younger", we need to find the percentage of men employees in the company.

Option 1 - gives information that 25% women employees are 30 or younger. It means, total women employee in the company is 50%.

Hence, total men employee in the company is 50%.

Option 2 - gives information that 15% (50%-35%) men employees are older than 30.

Hence, percent of the men employees are 30 or younger = 35/50 = 70%

Answer is C. HTH. Cheers!
