C)The two quantities are equal.
D)The relationship cannot be determined from the information given.
Using smart numbers, let's say the team played 100 games
80% = 80 games were played by end of July
50% of 80 games = 40 games were won
20% = 20 games were played after July
60% of 20 games = 12 games were won
Total games won = 40 + 12 = 52.
The two quantities are equal. Answer C.
