Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0btw, without even doing calculations u can logically solve this problem. we know its for times more and a total of 94 students. 92 and 77 are out righ away. considering its more then 4 times more, 23 is out too as it goes over 94. so only right answer is 17. another trick if you do not understand or like the mathematial way :)
