First, know the deficit meaning is too small in bar chart below zero are deficit. Total deficit countries are 13. They asked the middle 5 deficit countries. I am dividing 13 into 4+5+4. The middle one is 5.

Those five deficit countries are India, New Zealand, South Africa, Korea and Namibia(Average of 5 deficit countries is 514.1+505.3+425.7+366.6+134.9=1946.6

The average of middle five deficit countries is = 1946.6/5 = 389.32 This is nearest to Korea. So option A is correct
