Each voter can only vote for a single candidate. 20% of the voters refrained from voting and candidates A, B and C received votes in the ratio 4 :3: 1 respectively. If there were no invalid votes and Candidate C got 2 million votes, then how many voters (in millions) refrained from voting?

2
• b)
2.4
• c)
3.2
• d)
4
• e)
8
Correct answer is option 'D'. Can you explain this answer?

ratio = a:b:c=4:3:1
but c =2 million
thus multiplying the ratio with 2 we get = 8:6:2
thus total = 16 million
As 16 million is 20% decreased value of total X(let) voters
16 = X(1-20/100)
thus X= 20 million
thus number of people not voted = 20-16 million =4 million
