1.
Ratio of Women : Children
5 : 2
or 25 : 10

Ratio of Children : Men
5 : 11
or 10 : 22

Therefore ratio of Women : Men
25 : 22

As we are not given any other info, hence 1 is insufficient.

2. women < 30

As 2 does not have any info on the no. of men, hence it is insufficient.

1 & 2 => The only possibility for women to be less than 30 and still maintain the ratios given in the question, is when women = 25, for which men=22.

Thus C.
