A. 0
B. 10
C. 15
D. 20
E. 30


Total 120 investment advisors
30 in bonds and 90 in equities

Fifty percent (investment advisors) are board-certified = 0.5 * 120 = 60
one third of the equities advisors are board-certified ==> 90*(1/3) = 30 and remaining 60-30 = 30 are bond advisors who are board certified

bonds advisors not board-certified are = 30-30 = 0

Hence option A is correct
Hit Kudos if you liked it 8-)
