a. 19.7%
b. 19.9%
c. 20.1%
d. 20.5%

ANSWER: 19.7%
 
None of the two missing values is more than 10% of the total runs scored in that match.

Maximum possible runs scored by Ashwin in Match-1 = 10% of 270 = 27

Maximum possible runs scored by Ashwin in Match-3 = 19

Note: Why is Ashwin’s score not 24? Because he has to score less than 3rd lowest scorer = 20

So, Maximum possible percentage contribution:

(27+100+19+53) / (270+300+240+200) x 100% = 199 / 1010 x 100% = 19.7%
