SOLUTION

In a poll of 66,000 physicians, only 20 percent responded; of these, 10 percent disclosed their preference for pain reliever X. How many of the physicians who responded did not disclose a preference for pain reliever X?

(A) 1.320
(B) 5,280
(C) 6,600
(D) 10,560
(E) 11,880

The # of physicians responded = 0.2*66,000 = 13,200.

Of these, 10 percent disclosed their preference for pain reliever X --> 1,320 disclosed, thus 13,200 - 1,320 = 11,880 did not.

Answer: E.

90% of 20% of 66000 is the required answer
=> 18% of 66000.
13200 - 1320 = should end with 088. Hence Option E)
