This implies, that the probability that random student selected is a female is 0.48 i.e. less than 0.5 So, the probability that any selected candidate is a female graduate is surely less than 0.5. Hence, Sufficient. Statement 2: Out of 50 students, only 18 are graduate. This implies that probability of total graduate is 0.36 i.e. less than 0.5 So, the probability that any selected candidate is a female graduate is surely less than 0.5. Hence, Sufficient. ### Top Member Senior | Next Rank: 100 Posts Joined 12 Jan 2019 Posted: 38 messages Statement 1: Out of 50 students, only 24 are female.
