E

Basic Formula:
P(white or even) = P(white) + P(even) - P(white and even)

1) Tells us P(white and even) = 0. But we know nothing about the first two terms. Not suff.
2) Tells us P(w) - P(e) = 0.2. Still not helpful, since we don't know P(w&e). Not suff.

1 & 2) We know P(w) - P(e) and P(w&e)=0. So we need to figure out what P(white) + P(even) is. We can't. Not suff.

Case 1: 15 white balls, and 10 even
Case 2: 10 white balls, and 5 even

In both cases, p(w)-p(e) = 0.2, but p(w or e) is different.
