The answer is C.

This is a Logical question - no need to do any calculations, just use a logical rule.
1) and 2) are both clearly insufficient - the portion of each company which is shared with the other could be the other companies entire clientele, or just a tiny fraction - no way to know...
Combined, however, is a different story: If the same amount (the people who are customers of both companies) is a larger percentage in one whole than in another, that means that first whole is smaller than the second. This is important logical rule to remember, which gives us the answer quickly!

DavidTutorexamPAL dude I really appreciate your effort! I kinda get it but not really the gist of it... so you mean that if we have the proportional values for both x and y, that they have to refer to a certain fixed amount und thereby become comparable? If so, great, but I still need some form of a dumbed down version of your explanation... i would award you with the biggest and nicest kudo you have ever seen! EDIT: NEVERMIND I GOT IT, JUST READ IT VEEEEERY CAREFULLY; APPRECIATE YOU! KUDOS ARE GIVEN
