My problem with this question was that it only says that each employee has an office or a cubicle, but does not say that the number of offices and cubicles is equal to the number of employees. So, there could be more offices and cubicles than employees. Am I jsut splitting hairs?

read the statement again, the word "either" is for me the keyword, what do you think?

1) Employees:cubicles = 3:2
We know 1 part of employees will sit in offices and 2 parts in cubicles. Percentage = 33.3%. Sufficient.

2) Insufficient. Nothing useful here.

I go with A

Yes, we know. It's stated in the question "At a certain company, each employee has either an office or a cubicle. If each office or cubicle is occupied by exactly one employee, what percent of the employees have offices? ", meaning to say every office/cube must be occupied by 1 employee
