B. 8720

C. 9000

D. 9160

### Solution(By Examveda Team)

Winner gets 65% of valid votes and loser gets 35% of votes
Difference between this two = 2748
(65-35)% = 2748
30% = 2748
Total number of voters, 100%
= $$\frac{{2748 \times 100}}{{30}}$$
= 9160

1. 65% of x - 35% of x =2748
30% of x =2748
30/100 × x =2748
x = 2748 × 100/30
x = 9160
