A. I only
B. I and II only
C. II and III only
D. I and III only
E. I, II, and III


total female candidates = 132 ; 3:1
class size 325 to 350
so range of males students can be 325-132 ; 193 and 350-132 ; 218
193 to 218 is our range
given ratio of male ratio is 3:1
divide given answer options by 3
156/3 ; 52 +156 = 208 OK
162/3 ; 54 + 162 = 216 ok
168/3 ; 56+168=224 out of range of 193 - 218

options 1 & 2 are correct
IMO B
