Foreign languages = 1.4 x 100 = 140
Fine arts = 1.8 x 100 = 180
Health and PE = 2.3 x 100 = 230
The total is 550.

The answer is E. Hope now is clear.

Sorry Guys. Forgive me.

I do not know why in the stem of the first question, it was not showed grade fields 1-12.

Now E has much sense. Apologize
