Answer comes out to be 50% if we combine both the statements if we assume any number of boys or girls
So answer should be C ie together sufficient

Ans C

Statement 1: Donno the percentage of boys and also the percentage of boys holding P.
Insufficient

Statement 2: Same as 1.Insufficient

Combining,we get the total percentage population holding P though population of each gender is unknown l.
