Question: Proportion of women in Austria = ?

Statement 1:
Let the number of women be 'x'
The number of men = 1.05x [5% more]

Total Population = No. of men + No. of Women = x + 1.05x = 2.05x

Proportion of women = No. of Women/Total Population = x/2.05x = 1/2.05

SUFFICIENT

Statement 2:
Let the population of Neighbouring Country be 'x'
Therefore, Population of Austria is 1.05x

Given: Population of women in Neighbouring country = 0.52x

Now all we know is that the total population of Austria is 5% more than that of the neighbouring country.
We do not know the proportion of women in Austria.

e.g. Let the population of the Neighbouring Country = 100
Thus, Population of Austria is 105

Number of women in Neighbouring Country = 52

So what does that tell us about the number of women in Austria? NOTHING!

NOT SUFFICIENT!

ANS: 'A'

Thank you Amrith! If I put a bit more thought into it I'm sure I would have gotten that q correct... Unfortunately we're all not given the gift of time in the GMAT

1) m = 1.05 w
Proportion = w/(m+w) = w/(1.05w+w) = 1/2.05
Suff.
2) Not suff.
