Easy### Solution

Option C is the correct answer.

### Option Analysis

Set A contains Set B. Question is number of elements is Set A?

Statement I is insufficient: Set B is 14 elements. So Set A has to be greater than or equal to 14. So still we don’t know how many elements. So not sufficient,

Statement II is insufficient: We don’t know how many elements in set B. We only know that 20% of elements in Set A are in Set B.

Together I and II sufficient, 14 elements in set B is 20% of elements in set A. So set A has 70 elements. So sufficient.
