Hi Gmatdecoder,

The way this question is worded isn't too common for the GMAT, but solving it is really more about organizing your information (and less about 'math skills').

We're given a list of facts to work with:

1) There are 20 mutual funds

2) Each analyst selects 2 of them

3) Each mutual fund is selected by 5 analysts

We're asked how many total analysts there are....

Since there are 20 funds and each is selected by 5 analysts, there were 100 total selections. Since each analyst made 2 total selections, there are 100/2 = 50 analysts.

Final Answer:

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
