Let us consider the total number of cars at the dealership be x.

Hence:
4 door sedans = 2x/3
SUVs = (x/3)*2/5 = 2x/15
Remaining cars = (x/3)*(3/5) = x/5

We have been told that x/5 = 24
=> x = 120

Hence C is the correct answer.

let total cars = x
so sedan ; 2x/3
left x/3 * 2/5 = SUV; 2x/15
now remaing cars
x/3 * 3/5 = x/5
x/5 = 24 ; x = 120
IMO C
