Answer the questions on the basis of information given below.

Twitter allows its users to post/share and read short messages known as tweets. Tweets can be of three types – Positive Tweets (in support), Negative Tweets (against) and Neutral Tweets. The following table presents the Number of Votes and Tweets received by certain political parties.

* Any party which has secured less than 2% of the total votes falls under ‘Other Parties’ category. For example, Party E secured less than 2% of total votes, in the year 2000.

Note: If the vote share (%age of total votes) of a party changes from 15% to 40%, gain in vote share would be 25% (= 40%, – 15%).

Question 82

# Which of the following parties received maximum number of “neutral tweets” in the year 2010?

Solution

Using the data in the table, we can calculate the number of neutral votes for each party as follows:

Party B: 108128 * (100 - 30.4 - 29.7)/100 = 43143

Party C: 96620 * (100 - 32.50 - 26.60)/100 = 39517

Party D: 41524 * (100 - 30.60 - 36.10)/100 = 13827

Party E: 32724 * (100 - 21.60 - 41) /100 = 12239

Thus, we can see that Party B has the maximum number of neutral votes.

Hence, option A is the correct answer.
