you want to find what percent 10 is. subtract all given from 1, = 1/20.
==> total 200 as 120th is 10.

Assume that the total number of students in the course is 'x'.

According to the given conditions, the total number of students who received:

- A's = x(1/5) = x/5
- B's = x(1/4) = x/4
- C's = x(1/2) = x/2
- D's = 10

Therefore, x/5 + x/4 + x/2 + 10 = x

<=> x - (19/20)x = 10
<=> x/20 = 10
<=> x = 200

The answer is D.
