It's a B.
Total no of condos sold is 16000.
So 16000-2400=13600 is answer.

Let the total number of housing unit= x
15% of x are condos and remaining are not condos
15% of x= 2400 =>x= 16000
no of "not condos"= 16000-2400= 13600

Ans- B

condos = 15% of total
so not condos = 85% of total

Now, 15% of total = 2400
85% of total = (?)
i.e. 2400 x 85 / 15
= 13600 (b)
