(2) On the tour, the ratio of number of the number of children to the number of women was 4 to 11.

Given $$m:c=4:3$$ we need number of women?

Statement 1: number of women can be any number less than $$40$$. Insufficient

Statement 2: we have $$c:w=4:11$$ and $$m:c=4:3$$ , $$c$$ is common in both the ratios, hence to combine the ratios we need a common value of $$c$$ in both the ratios

$$=> m:c:w=16:12:33$$. but we have no value here. Insufficient

Combining 1 & 2: we know number of women is a multiple of $$33$$ and less then $$40$$. so number of $$women=33$$. Sufficient
