Answer: (4) 46%
Explanation:-
Number of girls in a class = 50
40% of the girls = 50 x 40/100  = 20

Number of the boy in a class = 70
50% of the boy = 70 x 50/100 = 35

Total students in a class = 50 + 70 = 120
Total attended students in a class = 20 + 35 = 55

Percentage of attended students = 55 x 100/120
= 45.83% = 46% (approximately)

Hence, attended students are 46%.
