Directions for questions 11 to 13: Answer the questions on the basis of the information given below. The political parties mentioned in the graph given below participated in a constituency election. The graph shows the number of votes received by the candidates of six major parties and other smaller parties in Round 1 of the election. The election is held as follows: In Round 1, if a candidate gets more than 50% of the total number of votes cast in that round, (s)he is declared the winner of the election, else, top 5 candidates based on the number of votes move to Round 2. In Round 2, if a candidate gets more than 50% of the total number of votes cast in that round, (s)he is declared the winner of the election, else, top 3 candidates based on the number of votes move to Round 3. In Round 3, the candidate who gets the maximum number of votes in that round is declared the winner of the election. Assume that there are no ties in deciding top 5, top 3 (if Round 2 happens) candidates or the winner (if Round 3 happens) in Round 3.
