sir in tramspotation cost ques I'm getting 18.75
In the question it is written A got 35% of total votes. And total votes is 90. Not 100. We have assumed total VOTERS to be 100 out of which 10 people do not vote. So the total VOTES is 90. Right ? How is it 100 ? How can the word VOTERS and VOTES be same ?
