    Both are legitimate. You need the quota to be more than half of the total of the weights and less than or equal to the total of the weights

    I) 20+15+12+5 = 52

    Has to be more than 52/2 = 26 and at most 52. 27 is in that range. This one is OK.

    II) 20+17+10+5 = 52

    Again, has to be more than 26 and at most 52. 30 is in that range. This one is also OK.

    The answer is C.
