total - 100
TY - 40
FY + TY = 70 => FY = 30 => SY = 30
SY/(FY+SY) = 30/60 = 1/2

Ans D

Very good question +1. I was not able to crack it in 2 mins....

Pretty straight forward: always use a total of 100

40% [u]are[/u] 3rd years = 40 students means the remaining 60 are 2nd year students

70% [u]are not[/u] 2nd years = 30 students

Not 3rd years = 60 and 2nd years = 30 students

= 30 / 60 = 1/2
