if you assume 100 to be total number of employees
question: >=5% ??

given: >=4% U = 5% U > 5% equals 25

from 1) >=4% U <5% equals 20, implies 5 people have given >=5%
from 2) 95 people gave <5%, as info about how may people participated in the contribution is not goven we do not what the rest 5% people have done

-------4------5-----
___X____Y_____Z_

X% contribute less than 4;
Y% contribute at least 4 but less than 5;
Z% contribute at least 5.
Note that these groups don't have intersections and X+Y+Z=100.

Given: Y+Z=25%. Question: Z=?

(1) Y=20% --> Y+Z=20+Z=25% --> Z=5%. Sufficient.

(2) X+Y=95% --> X+Y+Z=95+Z=100% --> Z=5%. Sufficient.

Hi bunuel
for stmt 2 to be sufficient, we need to assume that everyone participated in the contribution. It is not mentioned anywhere right?

I didn't assume that.

X% of the employees who contribute less than 4 include those employees who do not contribute at all (contribute 0<4).
