Since there are 5 teams the total number of game than can be palyed = 5C2 = 10.

From the chart we see
A plays 4 games,
B plays 1 games
C plays 1 games
D plays 1 games

So a total of 7 Games have been played.

Out of the 7 = 5 with results and 2 draw

So the remaining 3 games if all the game end with result then
the percentage of draw games = 2/10 = 20%

So the remaining 3 games if all the game end with draw then
the percentage of draw games = 5/10 = 50%

So it percentage of draw games can be anything 20% <= D <= 50%

So (A) .
