Four political parties W, X, Y and Z decided to set up a joint candidate for the coming parliamentary elections. The formula agreed by them was the acceptance of a candidate of the most of the parties. For aspiring candidates A, B, C and D approached the parties for their ticket.
- A was acceptable to W but not Z
- B was acceptable to Y but not X
- C was acceptable to W and Y
- D was acceptable to W and X
When candidate B was preferred by W and Z, candidate C was preferred by X and Z and candidate A was acceptable to X but not Y: Who got the ticket?
Acceptance of a candidate by political parties:
A - W,X
B - Y,W,Z
C - W,Y,X,Z
D - W,X
So, C was acceptable to all the parties.
The correct option is C.
