OA is C.
I know this is a official exercise from GMAC and is probably right, but for me the answer is E. The statements do not give any information about neutral numbers (zeros)
Both the statements are individually insufficient, as they keep several probabilities open. Combining them gives an easy choice, so C is correct. Zeroes add neither to +ve nor -ve side so they don't matter.
