Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

For #1.) Choice C. (3rd choice) displays the more formal and correct English language. "Women account for 40% of all police officers in the United States."

The first choice is not formal, the word "cop" is slang.

The second choice uses the word "policemen" to refer to women. the word should be replaced by "police-women."

The fourth choice is not formal because of the word "copper."  Copper is slang.

For #2.) We should choose choice A.) It is the staff that is persuaded, not the community program. as choice B claims. choice C is missing the word "the" in front of the word "observers."

for #2.) choice A is the better one.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
