Points scored by spans = 42 x 8 = 336
Points scored by beats = 36 x 5 = 180
Points scored by tips = 720 – (252 + 180) = 204
Most points were scored by spans. Hence, spans would have more area than the other two types of goals.
We can eliminate options B, D and F.
We know the proportion of points scored by spans would be less than 50% since 50% of 720 is 360.
A and C show that proportion of points scored by spans is more than 50%.
Hence, E is the answer.
