We are told that 18+2=20 of the garments inspected compose 2/3 rd of the shipment, hence the shipment consists of 20/(2/3)=30 garments. We want 90% of the garments to pass inspection, so we need 0.9*30=27 of the garments to pass inspection. For now only 18 of the garments passed inspection, thus 27-18=9 of the garments from uninspected 10 must pass inspection.

Answer: B.

B = 9

2/3x= 20
x=30

for 90% approval we need 27 garments approved.
already approved = 18
we need 9 more. hence B.
