The answer should be C

from 1 we just know how many algebra guys has PC ... we dont know any thing about rest of the students .. so insufficient

from 2 we know 79% of total student either study algebra or have PC ... but from the main statement we know that only 45% took algebra so atleast 34 % has PC but still 2 doesnot say how many algebra guys has PC ..

this we get from 1 so once we add 1 and 2 we get the no of students who has PC .

Hope i've not missed something .
