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 ‘Heavy Monsoon State’ is defined as a state with actual rainfall from June-August, $2019$ of $900$ mm or more, then approximately what percentage of ‘Heavy Monsoon States’ have a negative deviation from respective LPAs in $2019$?

1. $14.29$
2. $57.14$
3.  $42.86$
4.  $75.00$
