Data Sufficiency problem:

What fraction of this year's graduating class are males?
(1) of this year's graduating class, 33% of the males and 20% of the females transferred from another college
(2) of this year's graduating class, 25% transferred from another college

Can anyone explain this? Thanks!

Say,

X = total number of students graduated
B = total number of boys graduated
G = total number of girls graduated


State B: alone does not help me
State A: alone does not help me

Taken together,

1/3 B + 1/5 G = ¼ X
B+G= X
We can solve this and get the ans as 5/13
