My answer would be (A)

St (1) gives you the no. of college graduates = 100.
Hence the total no. of emplyees = 200
Hence the No of employees over 40 = 120
Hence the No of employees over 40 with Masters Degrees = 36

St (2) only gives you a percentage and so you can't find the answer. All you can get is a percentage

yes. agree with A.

from 2, u can't get the total no of employees, so u can't find the answer.
