On the basis of given table in question ,
Let total number of film watchers be 100% .
In city A , If 60% of them watched less than two movies a week , then 40% watched two or more movie per week .
∴ 40% ≈ 2400⇒ 1% = 2400 40 Now , 100% = 100 × 2400 = 6000 40
Similarly for city B,⇒ 100% = 100 × 3000 = 3750 80
For city C,⇒ 100% = 100 × 2400 = 16000 15
Correct Option: D
