Good question.

1) 2/3 rd of the boys passed => 1/3rd of boys failed. let m be the fraction of girls failed... since 1/3rd of whole class has failed. M = 1/3rd. Sufficient!
Spoiler: :: Further explanation
... x be # of boys & y be # of girls & C be # of students.
x + y = C

... x/3 + m*y = C/3 total # of students failed

we can find m.


2) No info about failure given. Not suff

Hence Option (A) is correct.

Best,
Gladi
