I don't think you've given us all the information from the table. Maybe you haven't recognised all of the information.

Does "50% of them" means "50% of all employees" or "50% of males"? That makes the question ambiguous, and offhand I can't see enough information it answer it using either interpretation.

And you start with "Given additional information". That sounds like this is the second part of the question, and something we need to know is in the first.

Can you maybe supply the other info?
