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'
