Out of the 100 chocolates, you'll have none left. If you ate 50, gave away 10, lost 30 and threw away 50, this is a total of 140 chocolates. This is 40 chocolates more than the 100 chocolates you had initially. It's not possible to find the percentage of chocolates left.

The only thing I can think is they mean all of these percentages.. You eat 50% which would leave you with 50.. you give away 10% of those and lose 30% of what is left.. then throw away 50% of what is left of that ...
