To answer the question we need to know the number of students who are both boys and have black eyes.
We'll look for statements that give us this information, a Logical approach.

(1) No information on black eyes.
Insufficient.

(2) No information on boys.
Insufficient.

Combined:
No information on the overlap between 'boys' and 'black eyes' (there could be maximal overlap = 1/3 * 42 or there could be no overlap at all)
Insufficient.

(E) is our answer.
