Answer: C
n(ForL) = n(F) + n(L) - n(F&L) ------ a
Given: n(F) = 60, assume total people =100
to find: n(L) =?
1) n(F&L)=0.1*60 = 6
Two unknown in eq a---- (note we still dont know n(ForL)...) Here i assume that there may be people who own neither F nor L.
Unsuffecient.
2) n(L) - n(F&L) = 40
Not suffecient to find n(L).

Both 1 & 2 gives n(L) = 46%

Stolyar, kindly confirm.

A is correct, for there are no people owning neither—it is followed from the initial verbiage: some—others—still others mean a complete list of people.

I invented it. Long, long time ago I exhausted my pack of interesting questions and since then I have invented them.
