1st statement helps us in getting the ratio of women to men ( W/C = 5/2, C/M = 5/11. Multiply W/C by 5/5 = 25/10. Multiply C/M by 2/2 will make it 10/22, hence W/M = 25/22)
2nd statement just tells that W is less than 30, it can be anything. Doesn't help in identifying the total # of people.
I would mark it to be E.

Women:Children = 5:2

Statement 1 Children:Men 5:11

Taken together we have:

5:2 and 5:11 (find the common denominator for 2 and 5 to combine the children and we have)

25:10:22 for Women:Children:Men

Statement 2 Number of women is less than 30

Well to maintain our ratio the only number of women possible is 25. Which means there are 10 kids and 22 men. Taken together the statements are sufficient.

Answer C
