•From the problem we understand,•Average experience of male employees=9.8•Average experience of female employees=9.1•Required info= male employees/female employees. Ratio••From 1)•Number of male employees= 52•Hence, total experience of male employees=52*9.8• but this gives us no information about females in the company. Their number is not dependent on the number of males and their experience is in no way related for us to calculate their number•Hence 1) is insufficient.•2) average years of experience for all employees=9.3Let F be the number of females and M the number of males•(F*9.1+m*9.1)/(F+M)=9.3•But 2) provides us no info on F and M•Consider 1) and 2),•M=52•Hence, ((F*9.1)+(52*9.8))/(F+52)=9.3•This can be used to solve for F. Hence, C, both 1) and 2) are together sufficient.
