In 1712 the government of Country Y appointed a censor to prohibit the publication of any book critical of Country Y’s government; all new books legally published in the country after 1712 were approved by a censor. Under the first censor, one half of the book manuscripts submitted to the censor were not approved for publication. Under the next censor, only one quarter of the book manuscripts submitted were not approved, but the number of book manuscripts that were approved was the same under both censors.

If the statements in the passage are true, which one of the following can be properly concluded from them?

(A) More books critical of Country Y’s governments were published before the appointment of the first censor than after it.
(B) The first censor and the second censor prohibited the publication of the same number of book manuscripts.
(C) More book manuscripts were submitted for approval to the first censor than to the second.
(D) The second censor allowed some book manuscripts to the published that the first censor would have considered critical of Country Y’s government.
(E) The number of writers who wrote unpublished manuscripts was greater under the first censor than under the second.

Ans is C
Pick numbers
1st Censor and 2nd Censor approved 300 books
Hence 1st Censor disapproved 300 and 2nd disapproved 100
Submitted books in 1st censor = 600 and 2nd censor = 400
-> (C) More book manuscripts were submitted for approval to the first censor than to the second.

2 min. C is right.

Assume 300 books submitted for 1st censor. Number approved = 150.
Therefore, no. approved for 2nd censor also equals = 150. Which means,
3/4 x number submitted for 2nd censor = 150 or Number submitted for 2nd censor = 200.

So, 1st censor 300, 2nd censor = 200.

so, C is right.
