The team has to win over 22 games to keep a 3/4 winning record. So it can afford to lose 4 more games.

(D) <--- edited because I forgot to read "more games"

So far: 17 won, 3 losses. Total games played so far = 20 games.

20 games = 2/3 of total number of games.

:. (2/3)xTotal No. of Games = 20
-> Total No. of Games = 30

For a win rate of at least (3/4)x Total No. of Games

:. No. of Wins > (3/4)x30
-> No. of Wins > 22.5

-> Need to win at least 23 games in total.
-> lose a maximum of 7 games in total.

So far lost 3 already. Therefore can only afford to lose 4 more games MAX to meet 3/4 win rate requirement.

No question that the OA should be D --> 23/30 = .766
