E.

let f= # of female students in Wisconsin University
m= # of male students in Wisconsin University

Question says MIS students= 0.05f + 0.12m

0.05f/ (0.05f + 0.12m) doesn't give any real number. E.

I think the ans is E
Question is asking about the % of female in MIS program

1) 5% of female student of Wisconsin Univ studying in MIS (insuff)
2) 12% of male student of Wisconsin Univ studying in MIS (insuff)
It seems both statements when combined also insuff to find out the ans

IMO E.

5% of the female students in Wisconsin University are studying MIS = > no info about % of female in MIS
12% of the male students in Wisconsin University are studying MIS = > no info about % of female in MIS

combined : .12 x are male in MIS and .05y are female in MIS ; we do not know values of x and Y or ratio of x and y..

This is where I exactly ended up. We dont have any relation between f & M to solve further. Hence E.
