Company policies require every project group to have an even number of employees, include representatives of at least 3 ethnic minorities (Asians, African and Hispanic Americans), contain at least 33% women, and contain at least one supervisor with an MBA degree per 5 employees. The company is planning to start a lithium panel project together with a Taiwanese partner. The team will include 3 top scientists and 2 assistants from Taiwan. With the following additional employees available, what is the smallest team size possible to make sure that the project meets the policy requirements?
Name Sex Degree Ethnicity
Albert male LLM American
Bethany female MBA American
Boon male M.S. Asian (Singapore)
Chicako female B.A. Asian (Japan)
Godwin male M.A. African (Nigeria)
Grace female B.A. American
Helen female M.S. African American
Jamal male MBA African American
John male MBA American
Maria female Ph.D. Hispanic American
Peter male MBA American
Rachael female B.A. American

I was puzzled by this question because I couldn't figure out the sex of "3 top scientists and 2 assistants from Taiwan." The explanation assumes they will all be males but I don't understand how you can get to that assumption based on the information given.

In my humble opinion, this is an extremely atypical question.
