Please help me.

In the first question, shouldn't the technicians added for each year be New-Left?

I agree, each year actual number of technicians/accountants added are the ones who : joined-left.

Is, added means New-left?

While doing the difference between technicians and accountants added, why didn't they consider 1200 and 1160 that is the starting values in the new row of both technician and accountant?

Please help me.

@Dimple

In the question, it is asked they need the difference from 1996 to 2000 that is the reason they have not counted the initial year 1995.

1997 technicians value 240.
