(1) Let us assume that total number of salesperson in Securities and Insurance is the same, say 100, it holds true that no. of males in Insurance > no. of males in Securities. In this case definitely no. of female in Securities will be greater than no. of female in Insurance.

Now lets say, in Securities there are 100 salesperson but in Insurance there are 1000 salesperson, it will still hold true that no. of males in Insurance > no. of males in Securities but now the no. of females in Securities will be just around 37 but that in Insurance would be 262. Hence, we have two contradictory cases, leaving (1) INSUFFICIENT.

(2) No. of salesperson in Securities (S) > No. of salesperson in Insurance (I)

S > I

Therefore, 37.1% of S will always be greater than 26.2% of I
SUFFICIENT
