At Consolidated Foundries, for a resolution to become policy, a quorum of at least half the 20 directors must pass the resolution by at least a two-thirds majority. At a meeting of the board of directors, did resolution X pass or fail? 

(1) Ten directors voted for the resolution. 
(2) Seven directors voted against the resolution

[Reveal] Spoiler:
......
Correct answer says B but my query is say for statement 2 only 7 directors came then the quorum will fail cause of lack of minimum strength ie 50 percent.

And what if 10 members attend meeting and 7 vote against. Then quorom fails.

Here are are getting contradiction answers so answer IMO should be E.

What do you guys think?

hi...

the answer is going to be B ..
(1) Ten directors voted for the resolution. 
you do not know how many were present....
if LESS than 15 ans is PASSED
if MORE than 15, ans is NO

Insuff

(2) Seven directors voted against the resolution
Take the max 20..
2/3 of 20 is 13.33, so 14 should have passed

so MAX possible NOs is 6, even if all 20 are participating..
here it is 7,
ans will always be NO
suff

B
