Answer is B.

Six majors are as follows: a + b + c + d + e + f
Each has at least 20 seniors: 20 + 20 + 20 + 20 + 20 + 20

4 of the majors have 300 seniors: a + b + c +d = 300
There are a total of 400 seniors.

So e + f = 100. One of the subjects has to be 20 for the other to be maximized. If e = 20, then f = 80.

B

400 = 300 + 20 + x => x = 80
= 3/4 * 400 in 4 subjects + 20 min for 5th subject + x = 400
