    Two To One

    Ireland went to the polls on Friday. In the final count issued Saturday afternoon, yes votes outnumbered the no votes about two to one.

    What was the percentage of 'yes' votes?

    A) 30%
    B) 50%
    C) 75%
    D) 60%
    E) 25%


    Why B, why not D? What does two to one mean?

    Re: Two To One

    I reckon that there would be about 66% yes votes and 33% no. "D" is the closest answer to that.
