Given that the total number of employees at the rank of executives across all companies is $10,000.$

• The number of employees in the company $C2 = \dfrac{5}{100} \times 10000 = 500$
• The number of employees in company $C2$, who has management degree $= \dfrac{1}{5} \times 500 = 100$
• The number of employees in the company $C5 = \dfrac{20}{100} \times 10000 = 2000$
• The number of employees in company $C2$, who has management degree $= \dfrac{9}{10} \times 2000 = 1800$

$\therefore$ The total number of management degree holders among the executives in companies $C2$ and $C5$ together $= 100 + 1800 = 1900.$

So, the correct answer is $(C).$
