(2) Since last year, Company X recruited 300 new male workers and no new female workers, raising the ratio of the number of male workers to the number of female workers to 2 to 3.

Statement 1 is clearly insufficient as only ratio is given.

Statement 2 gives the ratio after the addition of 300 new male employees, but no info about the ratio before that. Hence insufficient.

Combining both:

Male:Females = 2:5

After 300 new males ratio becomes 2:3.

Now \(\frac{2x+300}{5x} = \frac{2}{3}\)

Solving gives x as 150.
Total employees = 5x = 5*150 = 750.

C is the answer.
