"C"...50 %

If 100 ppl onboard and X have round trip tickets, then

20 + 0.6X = X

X = 50

banarjee is right! 50%

with these problems, always pick a number. 100 is good since we have % invlolved!

20% of 100=20 Roundtrip with cars.

X is the total number of Roundtrip tkt holders

60% of X dont have cars!

20+0.6x=x

x=50....since total number of passengers is 100, therefor 50% are roundtrip tkt holders...
