E

1) ratio of W:C:M= 12.5:5:11
need to know number of women or number of children to determine number of men
insuff

2) W<30
insuff, nothing about men

together
W:C:M= 12.5:5:11
W<30

W could be 25 or it hypothetically could be 12.5
which would give you 22 and 11 men, respectively
so insuff

C

it is possible to find out the m/w ratio using m and w against children rations so 22/25

since there was less then 30 females the number has to be in increments so 25

Let women be = 5x
Men be = 11y
and
children be = 2x or 5y.(2x = 5y)
Therefore, 5x + 2x + 11y = T (total no. of people)
Substituting y for x we get,
25y/2 + 5y + 11y = T
57y/2 = T
Now from 2) women < 30 i.e., 25y/2 < 30
y < 60/25
y cannot be 1 because then T will not be a whole no. y cannot be 3 because then, y > 60/25
Therefore y = 2
Therefore T = 57 and the respective nos. of women, men and children can be determined.
Ans is C.
