(1) tells us original employees >25
not sufficient

(2) tells us original employees <27
not sufficient

on combining
26
C

Let number of employees in company = x

1) if 4 employee added number will be "atleast" 30

x+4 >= 30 => x>=26

Not Sufficient

2) if 4 employee resign number will be "fewer than" 23

x-4 < 23 => x < 27

Not Sufficient

1+2

x>=26 and x<27

Therefore x=26

Call the number of employee is X.

(1) If 4 additional employees are hired by the company and all of the present employees remain, there will be at least 30 employees in the company.

=> X + 4 >= 30 <=> X >= 26
We can not find X yet.

(2) If no additional employees are hired by the company and 4 of the present employees resign, there will be fewer than 23 employees in the company.

=> X - 4 < 23 <=> X < 27
This alone can not solve the problem. But combine (1) and (2) we have X < 27 and X >= 26, so X must be 26.

The answer is C.
