1) There must be atleast 6 women: 6/10 * 5/9 = 30/90 = 1/3 .... 1/3 < 1/2
If there are 9 women: 9/10 *8/9 = 72/90 .... 72/90 > 1/2
ST 1 is INSUFF

2) There must be at most 3 men. The max number of women is 7: 7/10 * 6/9 = 42/90 .....42/90 < 1/2. Therefore, the answer to the problem is NO. P is always less than 1/2.
ST 2 is SUFF

Ans B.

Is this right?
