I think most people including me, who get the answer as C, read the question stem wrong. I read the question as

- Are at least 10% people in country X, 65 year older & employed. Instead of reading the question as Are at least 10% of people who are older than 65, employed. What a silly mistake!

(1) In country X, 11.3 percent of the population is 65 year old or older
(2) In country X, of the population 65 year old or older, 20 percent of the men and 10 percent of the women are employed

MGMAT 1 --> 530
MGMAT 2--> 640
MGMAT 3 ---> 610
GMAT ==> 730

-- what does these scores mean?

I have my GMAT on 2nd December, and i am scoring same as above in mocks.. can i expect around 700 in my actual GMAT? I am too scared to fail.

It would be very easy to spot ans for this question if one can get the meaning of the question and options.
question & options of this question look like SC questions

Had a different approach for this problem,

Let a - no of 65+ employed.
Let b - no of 65+ unemployed.

question: a / (a+b) >= 0.1 (10%) => a >= 0.1 a + 0.1c => 9a >= b?

Statement 1: (a +b) = 11.3 % - Not suff
Statement 2:
Let m - no of males 65+
f - no of females 65+

so given 0.2m (20% male) + 0.1 f(10% female) employed.
so 0.2m + 0.1 f = a
also implies 0.8 m(unemployed)+ 0.9 f (unemployed) = b

now 9a => 1.8 m + 0.9 f, which is clearly greater than b (0.8m +0.9f), so 9a > b => suff
