As per first graph,
The number of students in Collage A = Total number of students x 21%
As per second graph,
The number of girls form College A = Total number of girls x 23%Correct Option: C
As per first graph,
The number of students in Collage A = Total number of students x 21%
The number of students in Collage A = 3500 x 21/100
The number of students in Collage A = 35 x 21 = 735
As per second graph,
The total number of girls from College A = Total number of girls x 23%
The total number of girls from College A = 1800 x 23/100
The total number of girls from College A = 18 x 23 = 414
Number of boys from college A = Total number of students in Collage A  The total number of girls from College A
Since, number of boys from college A = 735  414 = 321
Required percentage = 100 x Number of Boys from Collage A / Total number of boys in collage A
Required percentage = 100 x 321/735
Required percentage = 2140/49 = 43.67%

Number of boys from college E = 35 x 7  18 x 8
Number of boys from college E = 245  144 = 101
Similarly for collage F also apply the same formula.
Number of boys from college F = 3500 x 12/100  1800 x 17/100 = 420  306 = 114
Hence, the total number of boys together in collage E and F = 101 + 114 = 215
