Let the total number of votes cast = T

Number of votes cast in favour of proposal = F

Number of votes cast against the proposal = A

F = A + 80 -- 1

Since , the number of votes against the proposal was 40 percent of the total vote

A= (40/100)*T = .4T -- 2

=> F = (60/100)*T = .6T -- 3

From equations 1 , 2 and 3 ,we get

.2T = 80

=> T= 400

Answer B
