From chart 2 we can estimate the value of the expenses in "Scholarships and Operational" that is around 200,000 + 33,333.33 since each 100,000 is divided in three. Then, since we have to compute how much does not go into heating costs, we can either compute 233.333,33 - (233.333,33*0.12) = 0.88*233,333.33 = 205,333.33 that is approximable with 205,000. Answer D!
