The percentage of 4AH batteries sold to the total number of batteries sold was maximum in the year?

Answer: Option

Explanation:

The percentages of sales of 4AH batteries to the total sales in different years are:

For 1992 = | 75 | x 100 | % = 13.81%. | ||

543 |

For 1993 = | 90 | x 100 | % = 17.05%. | ||

528 |

For 1994 = | 96 | x 100 | % = 18.29%. | ||

525 |

For 1995 = | 105 | x 100 | % = 20.59%. | ||

510 |

For 1996 = | 96 | x 100 | % = 19.35%. | ||

465 |

For 1997 = | 105 | x 100 | % = 21.21%. | ||

495 |

For 1998 = | 115 | x 100 | % = 19.01%. | ||

605 |

Clearly, the percentage is maximum in 1997.

The Total sales are different in every time because it is the sum of all batteries in one year.

@Shivam

Please find that even it was mentioned 96 the value is calculated with 90/465 which is 19.35% and for 1997 it was 21.21% which is higher among all. So the answer is right. So its a type error. That's all.
