whats wrong with using Venn diagram here ? 1 more thing, , using the given data , we get 80% of the total attendees (as those who paid full fee ) , not the % of those who registered two weeks in advance .

Looks like this question is not complete. The required percent cannot be determined with given data. The answer can range from 72% to 92%. Could you please confirm?

Exactly we dont have any bifurcation of people who did not pay the full fee (how many registered in 2 week advance and how many did not)

without knowing that we can't reach the desired answer that how many registered in 2 weeks advance it could be 72% +0% (minimum) to 72% + 20% (maximum)

please clarify

Option D.

Number of people who registered early and paid full amount /Total number of people who paid full amount. =(72/82)*100 =80.0 %

Can you explain more clearly? I still don't get it. The problem ask what percent of conference attendees registered at least two weeks in advance. I think the formula should be Number of people who registered at least two weeks in advance/Total number of attendees.

Refer to the table in the attachment: Let x= No. of members who have paid in Full 10 % members paid in full and did not register in advance = 0.1x 72 % registerd in advance and paid in full.

So if total No. of members = 100, then 72 members paid Full and registered in advance.

Hence total members who paid full amount = 0.1x + 72 =x 0.9x =72 Hence x = 80 i.e. 80 out of 100 or 80 %
