Solution: took just over 1 min

Capacity
Team A - 40%
Team B - 60%

Preference
A - 70%
B - 30%

Assign as prefered to A first - 40%.
Remaining 60% to B => 30% don't get their preference
30% of 50 = 15.

Answer A.

it cannot be B

you have to assign to A first. No point in assigning any of B to A .. then you assign as much of those who prefer B to B and you have exactly 30% remaining.

I thought perhaps the question was copied wrong and lets suppose it should be "60 percent of remaining to team B". Even then
you assign 40% to A, then 60% of remaining ie 0.6 * 30=18 but this is still more than all those who prefer B (ie 15). In this case 3 of those who prefer A will be in B and the rest (12) will not be in any team and the answer is still 15.
