SOLUTION :

Let the number of cocks $=x$

$\&$ the number of goats $=y$

$\therefore$ From the question,

$x+y=76$

$2 x+4 y=212$

$\therefore \quad$ We get after solving eqn. (i) and (ii), $x=46$, and $y=30$.

$\therefore$ Total no. of cocks $=46$; Ans.

$\therefore$ Correct option is $(c)$

TRICK : Suppose that the all heads are of goat.

$\therefore \quad$ Number of legs $=76 \times 4=304$

Difference of their feet

$=304-212=92$

The difference of their feet

$=4-2=2$

No. of cocks $=\frac{92}{2}=46 ;$ Ans.
