Statement 1 only tells you that 25% of the projects have 4 or more employees assigned, which means 75% of the projects will have less than 4 employees. Therefore, insufficient.
Statement 2 only tells you that 35% of the projects have 2 or fewer employees assigned, which means 65% of the projects will have greater than 2 employees. Therefore, insufficient.
Together, combine the two statement you know that 40% of the projects will have 3 employees assigned to each project. Therefore, 3 is your median. Sufficient.
