St1:-Exactly 1/3 of the total membership of the legislature voted against the bill.

Total no of members voted=96-25-3=68

No of members Voted against the bill=96/3=32
So, No of members Voted for the bill=68-32=36
Sufficient.

St2:-The number of Legislators who voted for the bill was 8 more than the total number who were absent or abstained.
No of members Voted for the bill=(25+3)+8=36
Sufficient.

A state legislature had a total of 96 members. The members who did not vote on a certain bill consisted of 25 who were absent and 3 who abstained. How many of those voting voted for the bill?

Total Member: 96
Absent Member: 25
Present Member: 96 -25 = 71
Abstained: 3
Absent or abstained: 25 + 3 = 28
Eligible and Present for Voting: 71 – 3 = 68.

(1) Exactly 1/3 of the total membership of the legislature voted against the bill.

Total Voted: 68
Voted Against: 96/3 = 32
Voted in favor: 68 – 32 = 36

Option 1 alone is sufficient to answer

(2) The number of Legislators who voted for the bill was 8 more than the total number who were absent or abstained.

Total Voted: 68
Absent or abstained: 25 + 3 = 28
Voted in favor: 28 + 8 = 36

Option 2 alone is sufficient to answer

Each option alone is sufficient to answer the question.
