Hi Chris,
I got the answer to this question but I am a bit confused by what you said in the video. As per my understanding the A is not the answer because the value in the middle(the number of records distributed by L that are also distributed by M),3000, is not more than half(3550) of the titles that L distributes(7100) and this is different from what you state in the video viz., 3000 is not more than 4100.
And as it follows B is the answer because the value in the middle is more than half(2600) of the records that M distributes(5200).

Please let me know if my understanding is incorrect or are we stating the same thing in different ways
