The pie chart shows the distribution of New York market share by value of different computer companies in 2005.

The pie chart shows the distribution of New York market share by volume of different computer companies in 2005.

Number of units sold in 2005 in New York = 1,500

Value of units sold in 2005 in New York = US $1,650,000.

For the year 2005, which company has realised the lowest average unit sales price for a PC ?
Cannot be determined
Answer: Option
Although it seems to be Commodore, the answer cannot be determined due to the fact that we are unaware of the break-up of the sales value and volume of companies compromising the other categories.

What's meant by "value", isn't value the price amount, like a monetary valuation of the companies? Anyone explain me.

The procedure for finding a single unit sales value is to VALUE by VOLUME.

But as another section is unknown (it can be anything) we might have the lowest value from any of those companies hence commodore can't be concluded as the lowest.

Which is the correct answer, A or D? Please tell me.

Here we can not determine because we only know how many units are sold but don't know at what price it is sold because here cumulative price is given but individual company laptop price is not given.

Answer should be A.

Yes, the answer can easily determine because it was given there in percentage (8%...).
We only have found out 8% of the total price amount.

Please correct the above answer.

The answer is COMMODORE,

Because if we calculate for IBM PC in average unit sale price in question 3 of this section, which answer is $3080 per unit.

Same is for all, where we found that lowest is Commodore ($259 per unit).

At first, I went to Commodore, but once, reading Varun comment, I got it. Just tricky with the word "others".

I agree with @Shital.

Because in order to calculate anything so precise such as lowest average unit, we need to have full information about the entire set, which, in this case, do not have.
