Solution

The correct option is C 20
Let the number of matches lost be x.
Number of matches won=x+4      (By question) 
Total matches played =x+x+4=2x+4
Since the team won 35th of its matches, we have
x+4=35(2x+4)
5(x+4)=3(2x+4)
5x+20=6x+12
6x5x=2012
x=8
Total matches played = 2x+4
                                        =  16+4
                                        = 20
