I choose E.

For both 1,2 We don't have the number of students enrolled in one section at least. Therefore, both are insuffecient.

Did you try C ?

if section 1 has x students, section 2 has 84-x students.
now work on the ratios using A and B.

Its a linear equation with one variable.

C should be sufficient.

To ashkg,

Ans. E

We should know at least the number of students enrolled in one of the sections.

Let's say there are 42 students in each section, then the number of female in both equals to 49, whereas if there are 78 in the first and 6 in the second, then the number of female in both is 55.

My regards

hi there,

yes, I think the ans should be E.

the linear equation doesnt get solved, bcoz there is nothing to equate to !

bummed

i have it down to c or e and I will got with E.

I cannot think of a way to figure it out. The only thing i can thing of is that the number 84 has some propretie sthat I am not thinking about.

I tried dividing the two groups as 48 and 48 which works getting 32 females and 24 females equalling 56

then i used 60 and 24 getting 40 females and 20 females which of course gives a different answer.

has to be E.

It's (E). There's no way we can find out.

Let's assume there are n students in section 1, then there will be 84-n students in section 2.

Using (1), we're told 2/3n = number of female students in section 1.
not sufficient

Using (2), we're told 1/2(84-n) = number of female students in section 2
not sufficient

Using (1)+(2),
Doesn't help us either, we still cant' find out what's n.

So E it is.

total = 84
students in Section 1 = n
students in Section 2 = 84 - n

1: female = 2n/3
male = n - (2n/3) = n/3 ......................nsf

2: male = (84-n)/2
female = (84-n)/2 ...............nsf

1&2: doesnot give any solution for n..... nsf...

I also think it's E.

x+y=84

stmnt 1 - 2/3x - female, 1/3x - male
not suffic.

stmnt 2 - 1/3y - male, 2/3y - female
not suffic.

Combining them would still result in x+y=84 - not suffic.
