Option 2 : 10

**Given:**

A gets 120% more votes than B

**Formula used:**

Total number of votes = Votes got by (A + B + C)

**Calculation:**

Let the number of votes B gets be x

Number of votes A gets = 2.2x

Number of votes C gets = 2.2x - 3,50,000

Now, A/Q

x - 2.2x + 3,50,000 = (5/100) × (x + 2.2x + 2.2x - 3,50,000)

⇒ -1.2x + 3,50,000 = (1/20) × (5.4x - 3,50,000)

⇒ -24x + 70,00,000 = (5.4x - 3,50,000)

⇒ 24x + 5.4x = 70,00,000 + 3,50,000

⇒ 29.4x = 73,50,000

⇒ x = 2,50,000

⇒ Number of votes polled = 5.4x - 3,50,000 = 10,00,000 = 10 lakh

**∴ The required vote is 10 lakh.**
