A Deficit occurs when Imports>Exports. When you compare both the graphs for 4 countries Exports>Imports. So, there's a trade surplus in those 4 countries.

Surplus means More/Profit. It is obtained by Exports.

Surplus= Exports > Imports.

A= 92 > 87.
I= 4002 > 2744.
J= 4038 > 3043.
K= 4453 > 3644.
