Number of boys in college A = 3500 x 21/100  1800 x 23/100 = 735  414 = 321
Similarly we can get the number of boys from other collages.
Number of boys in college B = 3500 x 9/100  1800 x 10/100 = 315  180 = 135
Number of boys in college C = 3500 x 33/100  1800 x 31/100 = 1155  558 = 597
Number of boys in college D = 3500 x 18/100  1800 x 11/100 = 630  198 = 432
Hence, number of boys in college C has maximum.
