It's (No of candidates selected from hariyanaĆ·no of candidates selected from Delhi )*100.

Am I right?

Bhagya said: (Feb 4, 2021)  
Yes, you are right @Athira.

Required % = No of selected candidates from Hariyana / No of selected candidates from Delhi.

= (75+75+55+60+75) / (94+48+82+90+70) *100.
= 340/384 *100.
= 88.55%.
