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
