Dear souvik101990, GMATNinja, Other experts,

It took me about 4 minutes to answer this question correctly. My concern is that if a similar question,which involves calculation in every answer choice, comes in the real test should I go for it or make a guess and move on.
Thanks in advance.

Don't worry, you will NEVER see a question quite like this on the actual GMAT. I still can't quite figure out if this is trying to be quant, CR, or IR; an actual CR question will never require actual calculation. And as DmitryFarber mentioned above, there are other problems with the question: https://gmatclub.com/forum/beginning-in ... l#p1651655.

Sure, if you get totally stuck on something on your actual test, you'll need to move on. But please don't worry about this particular question, Captain!

anyone who don't understand B, it's very easy to understand why not B

lets suppose in 97 there are 0.8x who passed,0.2x who didn't . and in 98 there are 0.72 who passed and y who didn't.
so to satisfy A or B, 0.72x / (0.72x+y) < 0.8 => y> 0.18x in this case, y could be 0.19x that makes the total number < x . or y could be 0.5x , that makes the total senior student number > x ,which is the amount of 97.
