9.- if 60 percent of the employees at company X are female, does company x have more than 100 female employees?

1) Company X has more than 150 employees 2) Company X has 74 more female employees than male employees.

1. if company X has 200 employes then no. of female employees will be 120 but if no. of employees is 160 (>150) then no. of female employees will be 96. hence insuff 2. given 60% is female employee then 40% is male employee 74 is the difference in number of female and male employee which is equal to 20% of employees (60% - 40%). So 60% will be more than 100. hence suff

9.- if 60 percent of the employees at company X are female, does company x have more than 100 female employees?

1) Company X has more than 150 employees 2) Company X has 74 more female employees than male employees.

DS1 Alone. For 150 Employee, Female is 90. For 300 Employee, Female is 180. Not Sufficient. Choice left BCE DS2 Alone: (60%F-40%M)=20% is 74, hence Female is, 3x74 = 222. Sufficient. Cross CE So answer is B.

From 1. we can deduce that, number of female employes is 96 and we can answer the question(dose company X have more than hundred female employees). NO is the answer. I suppose its an YES/NO question. MY ANSWER IS 'D' LET ME KNOW, IF I AM WRONG...

No... you are wrong. if you read the question more carefully. 1 says employees are more that 150... if it is 150 female = 90. if 200 female = 120. so no of female can be less or more than 100.

The number can be less than or more than 100; if no. of employees is 320 (greater than 150), no. of female employees is 192 and by your own calculation, no. of female employees can be 96.

In the second statement the difference in no. of men & women, which is 20% of the total no. of employees, is 74 since 20% of x is 74; 60% of x is 74*3 So statement 2 is sufficient but statement 1 is not.

so B
