Default Meningitis

so I was revising u World and I have a doubt.

The most common cause of meningitis is S.pneumonia. (that is what I thought)

But, according to Uworld, 2-50 yr the most common cause are N.meningitids and S.pneumonia

Then after 50 it becomes S.penumonia

Now, if they ask a question with like a mCC of meningitis in a 20 year old what would it be? S.pneumonia or N.meningit?
