Formula used:
P(Total) = P(Tea) + P(Coffee) - P(Both) + P(Neither) -> (1)
P(Tea) = P(Only Tea) + P(Both)
P(Coffee) = P(Only Coffee) + P(Both)


Given data : P(Tea) = P(Coffee) = 50
P(Total) = 100

1. 0 employees take both tea and coffee.
P(Both) = 0, putting this value in the equation (1)
we will get P(Neither) = 0(Sufficient)

2. The survey included only those employees who take either tea or coffee.
P(Neither) = 0 and this answers the question straight-away(Sufficient) (Option D)
