(1) Company X employed 20 more women in 1996 than in 1995.

(2) Company X employed 20 more men in 1996 than in 1995.


Key word: ratio of men to women employed by Company X in 1995 was 1 to 2

M/W = 1:2, W = 2 M

M = 10, W = 20 or M = 15, W = 30

From 1, we dont have the data for Men

From 2, we dont have data for Women

When we combine we get to know what is the split between Men and Women in year 1996

M = 10, W = 20, when 20 is added to both, we get ratio as 3:4

M = 15, W = 30, when 20 is added to both, we get ratio as 7:10

Answer E
