The answer should be E here...

Although they give you the break down for each of the clubs it does say anything about overlap i.e. it is possible that some of the music club males are also in the other class.

I am iffy on these question
On one hand, I believe the question is inferring that the members are separate, but it doesn't specifically say that
We shouldn't have to guess on these types of question.

It does not infer that the two clubs are seperate. We should never infer that two different sets are mutually exclusive, in other words, have no elements in common.

Very true. This is usually a common mistake. More common where even odd question are asked and we infer that the numbers are integers eventhough it is not stated.

definitely E. There is a potential of an overlap and the two clubs do not have mutually exclusive members.

There might be some common members for both the clubs. Hence both statements together also cannot give the answer.

There's any assumption here. In real GMAT there's no such kind of ambiguous question.

I think you are wrong on this one. If it is in GMATPrep, you should expect to see similar kind of questions on the real test.
