II. 20% of college studying students who participated were males.

Let us take the total of the number of people who attended to be 100

hence 30 students were studying in college
and 70 were alumni.

Now as per the question we need to know the total number of students who were males, for this we need to know the number of males out of the students who are studying and the number of males from the alumni who visited.

Statement 1 - Tells us that 10% are females hence remaining 90% of the alumni visiting are males. Hence 63 out of 70 are males. On its own, the statement is insufficient as it does not tell us the number of males students studying in the college.

Statement 2 - Tells us that 20% of students are males i.e. 6 out of 30 are males. On its own, this statement is insufficient as it does not tell us the number of male alumni visiting.

But together these statements are feasible as out of 100 we have 63+6 = 69 males hence 69% of the participants were males.

Hence C is the correct answer.
