A. 15600

B. 12350

C. 13420

D. 16800

Correct Answer :

D. 16800


Let the number of votes enrolled be x. Then ,


Number of votes cast =75% of x. Valid votes = 98% of (75% of x).


75% of (98% of (75%of x)) =9261.


[(75/100)*(98/100)*(75/100)*x] =9261.


X = [(9261*100*100*100)/(75*98*75)] =16800.
