50 percent of the pigs that got cholera did not die
--> 50 percent of the pigs that got cholera have died
--> 50% of x = 10
--> 50/100*x = 10
--> x = 10*100/50 = 20

IMO Option A

1/2 the pigs with cholera did not die, so the other 1/2 with cholera did die. But that's 10% of the pigs, so 20% got cholera in total.
