Total class of MBA (Finance) = n
Total class of MBA (Marketing)=n

6 candidates left MBA (Finance) = n-6
4 candidates left MBA (Marketing)=n-4

How many candidates did MBA (Finance) course have at the beginning of the session?
(1) The ratio of the total number of candidates who left at the end of the session to the total number of candidates at the beginning of the session was 1:5.

If the ratio is 1:5 then if 10 people left the total number of students are 50

Total number of candidates = n+n = 50
n=25 = number of candidates at the beginning

(2) At the end of the session, 21 candidates remained on MBA (Marketing) course.

4 candidates left MBA (Marketing)=n-4

n-4 = 21
n=25

A and B are both sufficient
