explain 2nd question solution

kalyani said...

1)0.0625 (25/100)*(25/100)
2)27500
92% is total votes (8% not voted)
|

48% ...... 44%(92-48)
(won) ...... (defeated)
difference of votes is 4% = 1100
no. of votes is 100% = 27500
no.of voters who cast their vote 92% = 25300

For Q.No.-2, 8% voters didn't vote means 92% of total voters exercised their franchise. Now this 92% of total voters becomes 100% for the votes cast.
Now as per question there'r only two condidates and if one gets 48%, other would obviously get 52% of total votes cast, so how's it possible a candidate getting 48% defeat a candidate getting 52% of total votes cast. I think question is vague
