Each employee of Z is an employee of either Division X or Division Y, not both. If each has some part-time employees, is the ratio of the number of full-time to part-time employees greater for X than for Z?
(1) Ratio of full-time to the number of part-time is less for Y than for Z
(2) More than half of the full-time employees of Z are employees of X, and more than half of the part-time are Y

(1) Ratio of full-time to the number of part-time is less for Y than for Z
(2) More than half of the full-time employees of Z are employees of X, and more than half of the part-time are Y

This is clearly D

(1) rightly indicates fulltime to part time for X is higher than Z since this ratio for Y is less than Z.Z is divided among x and Y hence the ratio for z should be in between X and Y => sufficient
(2) here also it says fukll time employees i larger numbers are with X and part tim employees in larsger numbers are with Y .X's numerator is high and Y's dinominator clearly says ratio of X is greater than Z and Y
IMO D
