If the drama club and music club are combined, what percent of the combined membership will be male?

(1) Of the 16 members of the drama club, 15 are male
(2) Of the 20 members of the music club, 10 are male

I thought this was an easy one with the answer being C, (15 + 10)/(20+16) = 25/36. However, Gmatprep says E, but without explanation. Someone please confirm that I did this right and that the answer was just keyed wrong. Thanks

Very tricky question, it could be that someone is both in drama and music club at the same time.
The answer is (E). I would have miss it too.
