I think it is B

1. gives number of Boys who study biology, from that we can only find Non biology guys and no other info. so not suff.

2. says that the number of girls is twice the students who do not study biology. look at the chart i attached and work out the following equations

26+x=N
18+2x=N

from there x=8

so number of students is 34
so B

B.

(1) Don't know anything about number of girls, cannot determine.
(2) We know that 26+a = Total
18+2a = Total
Therefore, 26+a=18+2a, find a, then find total

OA is C. But there is no way that is correct. I agree that the correct answer is B.

Ya this is B. I think S2 intended to say either just girls who don't take bio or boys. Not the total who dont take bio.

St1:
Insufficient.

St2:
# of students in class = n
# of girls = n-18
# of people not doing biology = n-26

n-18 = 2(n-26)
n-18 = 2n-52
n = 44. Sufficient.

Ans B
