[A]. 19000
[B]. 22000
[C]. 26000
[D]. 28000

Answer: Option C

Explanation:

From the line-graph it is clear that the productions of Company X in the years 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001 and 2002 are 119000, 99000, 141000, 78000, 120000 and 159000 and those of Company Y are 139000, 120000,100000, 128000, 107000 and 148000 respectively.

Total production of Company X from 1997 to 2002

    = 119000 + 99000 + 141000 + 78000 + 120000 + 159000

    = 716000.

and total production of Company Y from 1997 to 2002

    = 139000 + 120000 + 100000 + 128000 + 107000 + 148000

    = 742000.

Difference = (742000 - 716000) = 26000.

You can calculate this way-
difference of each year= 20+21-41+50-13-11=26
Ans= 26 thousand.

119000 + 99000 + 141000 + 78000 + 120000 + 159000 = 796000.

So the difference is 54000.
