How many of the 100 people in the poll responded Below Average for both colas?

(1) Fifteen consumers responded "Above Average" for both colas.

(2) Forty consumers did not respond "Below Average" for either cola.

Statement 1: from this statement we get no information regarding "Below Average" response. Hence Insufficient

Statement 2: implies that 100-40=60 responded "Below Average".

Now if response for "Below Average" for both Cola A & Cola B were mutually exclusive, then as 30 responded "Below Average" for Cola B so 60-30=30 should have responded "Below Average" for Cola A.

But 35 responded "Below Average" for Cola A. Hence there are only 5 responses that were "Below Average" for both Colas
