40 percent of females
So, 60 percent males.
50% of females have MBA Degree. So 20% of females don't have an MBA degree.

Agian 70% of 60% males don't have an MBA degree. So, 42% males dont have an MBA degree.
Total is 20%+42% = 62% dont have an MBA degree

D is the answer

#women with MBA=50% of 40=20
#Male in the company=60
#Male with MBA=30% of 60=18

let the total no of employees M + F = x
0.4x=f
0.4x * 0.5 = Female employees with MBA = 0.2x = 20%
also,
0.6x * 0.3 = Male employees with MBA = 0.18x = 18%

% of employees without MBA = 100 - 38 = 62%
