@All.

It's Data InAdequate ,datas are like for 2002-2003 -847.78,750.31,681.98,1171.01,962.58 And for 2001-2002 are 1122.66,913.63,681.98,1171.01,962.58 now the answer is 142.48.

Why option D is incorrect? Pease explain clearly.

Joseph said:   3 years ago
Yes, Option D is valid. We just estimated some values because the graph is not to giving distinct values.

Deepu said:   4 years ago
Option D is the right one. We can't take A because too much gap is there 12.43.

The answer should be 700 not 712.43.

but as we can see the data is not accurate as we are taking like we are taking 800 first value but that is not 800.

Absolute change = (sum of all the values of 2001-02) - (sum of all the values of 2002-03).

Nishtha said:   6 years ago
As the difference is 700, hence taking the near most value 712.43.
