Solution

The correct option is D The Third Estate represented over 98 per cent of the population but they could be outvoted by the other two estates because of the disproportional representation.
The representatives of all three estates were to present their grievances to the king. The representation was not proportional to the population of each estate. The third estate represented over 98 per cent of the population, but the other two estates could outvote them because of the disproportional representation.
