since both with degree and without degree are equally represented means they are equal in number = let say =\(x\)
hence total will be =\(x+x = 2x\)

now level 1
\(30\) are with degree therefore without degree =\(72 - 30 = 42\)
now this 30 = 15 % of total =\(\frac{15}{100} X 2x\)
on solving we get \(x= 100\)
now if \(42\) without degree are in level 1...therefore no. of without degree in level 2 = \(x - 42 = 100 - 42 = 58\)

hence E

I'm going in on this one.

So let's say that we have the following

So we know that L1 = 72 and that C and L1 = 0.15X , we should set up a double set matrix btw but anyways, I'm just explaining the point with this problem. Now we are told that 0.15x = 30, therefore the grand total is 200. Now we know that L2 is 200 - 72 = 128. We also learn that C and No C are equally represented thus 100 each. Therefore No C and No L2 will be 100 - 42 = 58.

Thus E is the correct answer choice

Hope its clear even without the double set matrix, If you need graphical assistance please let me know

Cheers!

-----------College--------Non-College--------Total

Lev.1------30---------------42-----------------72

Lev.2------------------------X------------------

Total------100-------------100-----------------200

(100/15)*30=200 is total staff number with college and non-college have each 100

So, 100-42=58
