If the drama club and music club are combined, what percentage of combined membership will be men

1. Of the 16 members of drama club 15 are male
2. Of the 20 members of music club, 10 are male

Its E
We don't know how many men are there in both Drama and Music club.

15 + 10 = 25 is the max possible number of men if none of them are in both clubs.

Ok we had to think in terms of Venn diagrams, i was just thinking it of straight perrcentage question

Thus each question has some small trap everybody should be aware of, I guess

If we knew none of these men participated in both clubs at the same time, I could call C my answer but since this is not the case E is the answer.
