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

Option B
