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.
