    Answer:

    Option C.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given information:

    Sample size = 150

    Number of Opinions = 3 (Yes, No, No Opinion)

    Yes = 40

    No = 60

    No opinion = 50

    We need to find the expected frequency for each group.

    Expected frequency for each group is the quotient of sample size and number of opinions.

    \text{Expected frequency for each group}=\dfrac{\text{Sample size}}{\text{Number of Opinions}}

    \text{Expected frequency for each group}=\dfrac{150}{3}

    \text{Expected frequency for each group}=50

    Therefore, the correct option is C.
