Group = 100 people
60% said they would vote R = 60 people

Of the 60 people only 90% actually voted R = 54

40% said they would NOT vote R = 40 people

Of the 40 people who would vote NOT R, 5% voted R instead = 2

So 54+2= 56

Ans A:
Let's assume that there are 100 participants
60 responded to vote for R, Remaining din't respond to vote for R
eventually 90% of those 60 voted for R i.e. 54 voted for R
AND
5% of 40 also voted for R i.e. 2 more voted for R
now total votes for R = 54+2 =56 Ans.
