Official Solution:


(1) Half of the computers that are equipped with built-in modems do not have infrared ports. Look at the double set matrix below:

Image

As you can see we can not get the value of the yellow box. Not sufficient.

To elaborate more on this statement: since half of the computers that are equipped with built-in modems do not have infra-red ports, then another half of computers that are equipped with built-in modems DO have infrared ports. So, two boxes in "Modem" column are equal, since stem says that # of computers with modems and infra-red ports is 25 then # of computers with modems but without infrared ports is also 25.

(2) 35% of all computers are equipped with infrared ports but do not have built-in modems. Look at the double set matrix below:

Image

As you can see we can not get the value of the yellow box. Not sufficient.

(1)+(2) When we consider two statements together we get the following matrix:

Image

So, we have that 15% of the computers are not equipped with either of these devices.


Answer: C

Poorly worded question.
In this question the actual meaning is "built-in modems and infrared port"=="both built-in modems and infrared port"
However, it can also mean either built-in modems or infrared ports or both of these.
Initially, I got confused with what is mentioned.
