To compare the rainfall data, India Meteorological Department (IMD) calculated the Long Period Average (LPA) of rainfall during period June-August for each of the $16$ states. The figure given below shows the actual rainfall (measured in mm) during June-August, $2019$ and the percentage deviations from LPA of respective states in $2018$. Each state along with its actual rainfall is presented in the figure.

If a ‘Low Monsoon State’ is defined as a state with actual rainfall from June- August,$2019$ of $750$ mm or less, then what is the median ‘deviation from LPA’ (as defined in the Y-axis of the figure) of ‘Low Monsoon States’?

1. $-10\%$
2. $-30\%$
3. $-20\%$
4. $10\%$
