If 50 percent of those who request info about a certain MBA program actually apply for admissions to the program, what percent of those who request info eventually enroll.

(1) Twenty percent of those who apply are extended offers of acceptance
(2) Fifty percent of those who receive offers enroll in a different MBA program

I vote for C.

I'll explaining. Please let me know if it is incorrect.

Let the number of ppl who request for brochure be X
Let the number of ppl who applied to that MBA Program: x/2

(1) Twenty percent of those who apply are extended offers of acceptance
Means,
.2*(x/2)=x/10 are given offers.But we do not know if they enrolled or not.So A is not sufficient.

(2) Fifty percent of those who receive offers enroll in a different MBA program
We do not know the number who receive offers. So,B is not sufficient.

Let us take statement 1 and 2.
Thus, students who received offers but did not join the MBA program:
X/10-.5*(X/10)

Thus, we would get the number of persons who eventually enrol.

(Paul: I made an assumption here that fron all those who were offered admissions,they either went for this MBA program or a different one.
No body backed out and decided not to do an MBA this year.

I will go with E. Did the 'other' 50% actually enroll? So, for having to assume, it is E.

would go with E. We dont know whether the other 50% who didnt enrol in another MBA program ACTUALLY enrolled or not. So it cannot be calculated.
