Answer is C

From 1 we get
30/100*m + 20/100*f are transfer student!! So what!! GIVE ME MORE!

where m is no of all males in this year grad batch and f is no of all females

From 2 we get
25/100*(f+m) = transfer stidents

Thus combining,

we get relationship of m:f

Thus we can get m:total!

Hence C

Agree with C

From C, we can find out that m = 0.625f, from this, we can calculate m / (m+f)
