The question is:

The proportion of women among students enrolled in higher education programs has increased over the past decades. This is partly shown by the fact that in 1959, only 11 percent of the women between tewnty and twnety-one were enrolled in college, while in 1981, 30 % of the women between twenty and twenty-one were enrolled in college.

To evaluate the argument above it, it would be most useful to compare 1959 and 1981 with regard to which of the following characteristics?

a. The percentage of women between twenty and twenty-one who were not enrolled in college
b. The percentage of women between twenty and twenty-five who graduated from college
c. The percentage of women who, after attending college, entered highly paid professions
e. The percentage of men who graduated form high school

i think you afre missing a option here (D)

as per my understanding the answer shud be something that talks about the the % of men enrolled during both the periods

then only can we determine the proportion of women in a class

all the options mentioned here do not make much sense to me !

This is a 1000 SC question and u have not mentioned the correct option D here !!!inorder to know whether number of women enrolled decreased o increased we should know their absolute numbers or the correponding men % enrolled
