Lets take numbers here.
Assume that the total number of movie theaters in the town = 100

Then number of movie theaters with 3 screens or less = 60
=> Number of movie theaters with 4 screens or more = 40
Movie theaters with 3 screens or less selling popcorn at more than $300 = 20% of 60 = 12

Number of movie theaters selling popcorn at $300 or less = 56
=> Number of movie theaters selling popcorn at more than $300 = 100-56 = 44

Of these 44 theaters, 12 are those with 3 screens or less
Therefore 32 (44-12) must be those with four screens or more

C is the answer

A. 12

D. 40
E. 44


Assume the total theaters to be 100x (We assume this to avoid unitary method or decimals)

Given:
60x have 3 screens or less
Hence, 40x have 4 screens or more

20% of 60x sell more than $300 popcorn = 12x theaters.
56% of all sell less than $300 popcorn = 56x theaters. Hence 44x sell more than $300 popcorn.

Required: Percentage of theaters with 4 or more screens and more than $300 popcorn sale?
Of the 44x theaters that sell more than $300 popcorn, 12 have 3 screens of less
Total theaters with 4 or more screens and ore than $300 sale = 32x

Percentage = 32x/100x * 100 = 32%
Option C
