Data Interpretation Discussion

**Common Information**

Given below are the runs scored by eleven cricket players named $P1, P2, P3, P4$, ... $P11$ in their respective careers which lasted for 7 years.

Q. |
How many of the given players had a contribution of less than $10\%$ in the total runs scored by all these given players in their $7$ year career? |

✔ A. |
7 |

✖ B. |
8 |

✖ C. |
6 |

✖ D. |
5 |

**Solution:**

Option(**A**) is correct

Total runs scored,

$=2600+1070+5350+7215$ $+2400+1440+2110+1840$ $+1900+3880+3315$

$=33,120$

Now, $10\%$ of the total runs $=3312$

Except $P3, P7, P10$ and $P11$ all the players satisfy the condition given in the question.

Thus, $11-4=7$ players of the given players had a contribution of less than $10\%$ in the total runs scored by all these given players in their $7$ year career.

Hi Manisha,

The solution clearly mentions that EXCEPT $P3, P7, P10, P11$ all the players satisfy the condition given in the question. So, the answer is $11-4=7$ players.

P.S. I've added an explanation to the solution incorporating more calculation. Hope it's clearer now.

The question is contribution of less than 10 in the total runs. So, P3, P7, P10, P11 has contribution of less than 10. Hence, the answer should be 4 not 7. If I am wrong please explain.
