1998 Total expenses 495.5.
2002 Total expenses 713.36.
Let's take;
713.36 is 100%.
356.68 is 50%.
71.336 is 10%.
142.67 is 20%.
Add 50%+ 20% both value, we will get 499.35 is 70%.
Then 69 % is Answer.

The total expenditure in 1998 is;
= (98+3+23.4+83)Ã·5 = 207.4.
The total expenditure in 2002 is;
= ( 142+3.96+49.4+98)Ã·5= 293.36.
So % of 1998 to 2002 is given as;
=(207.4Ã·293.36) * 100,
= 70.69%.
So it's approximately 71%.
Therefore, option D is right.
= (98+3+23.4+83)Ã·5 = 207.4.

shouldn't it be like this?
(salary + bonus  fuel&transport  interest  taxes).
= ((288+39823.483) / ( 420+3.9614249.498) ) *100 = 64.35%.
(salary + bonus  fuel&transport  interest  taxes).
= ((288+39823.483) / ( 420+3.9614249.498) ) *100 = 64.35%.
