1) All of the cars that had antilock brakes also had auto transmission
2) 2 of the cars had neither auto transmission nor antilock brakes.

Total = {antilock} + {auto transmission} - {both} + {neither} --> 25 = {antilock} + {auto transmission} - {both} + {neither}.

Question: {auto transmission} - {both} = ?

(1) All of the cars that had antilock brakes also had auto transmission --> {antilock} = {both} --> 25 = {both} + {auto transmission} - {both} + {neither} --> 25 = {auto transmission} + {neither}. Not sufficient to calculate {auto transmission} - {both}

(2) 2 of the cars had neither auto transmission nor antilock brakes --> {neither} = 2. Not sufficient to calculate {auto transmission} - {both}.

(1)+(2) 25 = {auto transmission} + {neither} and {neither} = 2 --> {auto transmission} = 23, but we still don't know the numerical value of {antilock} (or {both}) to calculate {auto transmission} - {both}. Not sufficient.

Answer: E.
