A. I/6 of 60% of stockholders were not employees, so 10% are just stockholders. Sufficient

B. Using set theory. T = A + B -AnB + Neither

100% = 60%+80%-AnB+ 10%
100% =150%-AnB
AnB = 50%
Sufficient. Don’t need all these calculations. Just know that you can get AnB with info given

Therefore D.

Statement 1. Since 5/6 of 60% or 50% are stockholders as well as employees, it follows that (60-50) = 10% are just stockholders and not employees. Sufficient.

Statement 2. 10% are neither stockholders nor employees. This means that 90% of people are either stockholders or employees or both. We are given that 60% are stockholders and 80% are employees, so it means that (60+80-90) = 50% are both. Thus 60-50 = 10% are those which are just stockholers, and not employees. Sufficient.

Hence D answer
