i. In an election only two candidates contested 20% of the voters did not vote and 120 votes were declared as invalid. The winner got 200 votes more than his opponent thus he secured 41% votes of the total voters on the voter list. Percentage votes of the defeated candidate out of the total votes casted is:

- 47.50%
- 41.00%
- 38.00%
- 45.00%

Answer and Explanation

The Correct answer is : 45.00%

Let there be x voters and k votes goes to loser then

0.8x - 120 = k + (k + 200)

k+200 = 0.41x

k = 1440

and (k + 200) =1640

Therefore ${(1440)\times(3200)\times(100)\frac{}{}}$ = 45%
