Here is the catch [#permalink] New post 26 Jun 2007, 07:26
At a certain university, if 50 percent of the people who inquire about admission policies actually submit applications for admission, what percent of those who submit applications for admission enroll in classes at the university?
(1) Fifteen percent of those who submit applications for admission are accepted at the university.
(2) Eighty percent of those who are accepted send a deposit to the university.

I would go with C.

1. If univ has accepted an applicant this doesn't necessarily mean that this applicant will enroll - Insuff

2. You dont know how many are accepted - Insuff


Together you can canculate the %age as follows

Let x be total applicants who enquired
then 0.5x submit application
by 1 . 0.15(0.5X) are accepted
by 2 0.8(0.15(0.5x)) enroll ( assuming sending deposit means enrolling)

so if total 05.x people submit application .. 0.8*0.15*0.5X people enroll , therefore the percentage can be calculated

Statements 1 and 2 talk about those who applied and sent a deposit. It mentions nothing about who actually enrolled.

I believe it's E
