questions like this one is pretty confusing and I do not get any difference between "75% of the interns receive fewer than 6 hours of sleep and report feeling tired during their shifts" and "80% of the interns receive fewer than 6 hours of sleep".

huh............

yep true!

If the first condition were 75% of the interns who receive fewer than 6 hours... the ans would be 70% of (100% - 80%) which is 14%

If the condition is as it is stated, it's a bumble!
