just have a look on  official answer key generated by nta ....the answer of this question is 75. Also, it's an integer type question
I think when this question came in exam it is of integer type and answer must be 75.

logic: after passing through the polarizer for the first time intensity becomes half that is equal to 100.

after that from malus' law I/2cos^2(theta) , where theta=30 degree so it is equal to 75 on solving.
