Answer: E

**Solution:**

We can let the total number of cars be 100. So 60 cars have a manual transmission, 40 have an automatic transmission, 70 have four doors, and 30 have two doors. Since 90 cars have either a manual transmission or four doors, 60 + 70 - 90 = 40 cars have both a manual transmission and four doors. Therefore, of the 70 cars that have four doors, 70 - 40 = 30 of them must have an automatic transmission. Since 40 cars have an automatic transmission and 30 of them have four doors, the percentage of the automatic transmission cars that have four doors is 30/40 = 3/4 = 75%.
