lets say total employees are x

so 3x/4 are female and x/4 are male

stmt 1 - 4/5 female are american or mexican so 1/5 of female are canadian..

however nothing is giveb abt canadian male so not suff

stmt 2 - total canadian = x/3

not suff as individual count cannot be found

however using both we can find no. of canadian males ..

1/5 ( 3x/4) + no. of canadian male = x/3

using abv we get No. of canadian male and hence can find the %

C is ans

Answer is (C)

1) does not tell how many are Canadian

2) does not tell what percentage of females/males are Canadian

Combining both gives us Number of males
