(1) The number of people at the party who drink coffee is 4 times the number of those who do not drink coffee.

(2) The number of people who don't drink coffee is 36 less than the number who do drink coffee.


Lets assume, people who drink coffee: K & the one's who don't: L

(1) 4L + L = 60. L = 12. 48 people drink coffee, 12 don't: Sufficient
(2) (K-36)+K = 60. K = 48. 48 people drink coffee, 12 don't: Sufficient

D should be the answer.

Are there any other category besides those who drink coffee and those who don't?
