only E can make sense ..we are already told that the acceptance rate in each category was same ..
Lets say there are 2 categories with high prestige and rest are normal categories ..
lets say the no of foreign entries in both the high esteemed categories is 1000 and no of domestic entries is 10 and rate of acceptance for both categories is 1 out of 10.
Thus for these two categories:
No of foreign category entries selected = 100 each
No of domestic entries selected = 1 each
Lets assume in the rest of the 8 categories,
No of foreign entries were 10 each
No of domestic entries were 1000 each
and the acceptance rate was 8 out of 10.
No of foreign entries selected = 8 each
No of domestic entries selected = 800 each ..
foreign = 264/2080 = 0.127
domestic = 6402/8080 = 0.79
This explains both the facts ...
