How many girls are in the chess club?

(1) The chess club has a total of 50 members.

(2) Twice the number of boys in the chess club is equal to three times the number of girls in the chess club.
Solution:
(1) - Clearlynot sufficient
(2) -
Let number of boys in the chess club = B
Let number of girls in the chess club = G
2B=3G (Given in (2))
Possible Values of (B,G) can be (15,10), (3,2)... no specific answer so (2) is not sufficient either.
Now (1) +(2):
From (1) B+G=50 -----> (i)
From (2)2B=3G ---> (ii)
Using (ii), (i) can be written as:
1.5G+G=50
2.5G=50 => G=20
Sufficient, So Answer must be 'C'.
