Total contestants won = 30
and \(1/20\) of total entries.
Let the total entries be x
So \(1/20*x\)= 30
so x=600
Hence, Answer E

Hi globaldesi

Your approach to the question is right but you are slightly deviating from the point, your answer (E) is wrong reread the question and reconsider your explanation.

Ya i think i missed the last part of the question.
How many did not win.
Answer should be 600-30 =570 = D
I do that silly mistake of misreading the question
