Candidates P won only District 1 (with 800 votes) by the same percent as candidate Q won District 4 (with 1,800 votes > 800). So, clearly candidate Q is overall winner.

Now, the question asks about the district which gave the greatest number of votes for the winner, which means that we should basically compare 60% of 1,800 (1,080) and 70% of 1,200 (840) --> 1,080 > 840.

Answer: D.
