Correct Answer - Option 1 : 22.22%

Given:

Candidate A = 45% of total votes.

Candidate B = 25% of total votes.

Candidate C = 20% of total votes.

Concept used:

Valid vote = Total votes – Invalid votes

Calculation:

Let the total vote be 100.

According to the question,

⇒ Total valid vote = 100 – 10 = 90

⇒ Percentage of valid vote of candidate C = (20/90) × 100

⇒ Percentage of valid vote of candidate C = 22.22%

∴ Percentage of valid votes of candidate C is 22.22%.
