• question_answer 14) In an election between two candidates, the candidate who gets 30% of the votes got 10000 more votes than his nearest rival who got 20% votes. What is the number of votes polled? A)  30000                         B)  1,00,000      C)  20,000            D)  45,000

(b) Let total votes polled be$x$. Winning candidate got 30% votes. So, $\frac{30x}{100}-\frac{20x}{100}=10000$ $\Rightarrow$$x=10000\times \frac{100}{10}=100000$
