(1) The probability of randomly selecting 4 nurses is 1/3.
(2) n = 1.

Statement 1 says there is 1 nurse for 3 doctors.(or 4 nurse to 8 dpcotors) Not sufficient.
statement says number of doctors to be 1. But doctors may be 3 or 8 etc.
E is the answer IMO.

Hi,
you will have to look at the solution again..
the information from the 2 statements should be sufficient...

Hi,
Q tells us that 4 people are to be chosen and we have to choose atleast n doctors..

lets see the statements


(1) The probability of randomly selecting 4 nurses is 1/3.
We do not anything about n..
Insuff

(2) n = 1.
we just know that we have to choose atleast 1 doctor..

Combined..
If we have to choose 4 people from set of doctors and nurses, Prob that all 4 are Nurses is 1/3..
We are looking for prob that atleast one is a doctor out of 4 = 1- prob none is doctor in 4..
None doctor is SAME as all are nurses, which is 1/3
so ans= 1-1/3=2/3
