IMO E

S1 and S2 tell you only about one club each hence alone they are not sufficient.

If you combine you may think that you will get the answer. However, we do not know if any of the members belong to both clubs.

said E as well. You can quickly eliminate A, B and D. However, both statements done tell you anything about the overlap between the two clubs, so answer must be E

The question asks percentage of male membership, does the number that belong to both really matter here?
Total of combined membership = 36 Male members: 25
There will be 25/36 male members.
