I like 600 too that is if those who are wearing one earing are wearing ONLY one earing. Those who are wearing two earing are also wearing one earring. Twice. ah, brain freeze. Dirty GMATs have warped my thinking forever.

Half of 95% wear 2 earrings, half of 95% wear none = averages out to 95% wear one earring.
Also, 5% wear one earring
95% + 5% = 100%
Total = 100% wear one earring = 600 earrings
