The answer is (c) 20
The reason behind this is that you should minus the total number of cabins from each choice.
so (a) 12, 4812=36. now 12*6 is 72 girls. 36 cabins are lefts. half of them are largeand the other,small
18*10 is 180 and 18*6 is 108. so, 108+72+180= 360 which is not equalt to 344.
continue until you reach answer (c) 120+84+140= 344. Thus this is the answer
