(a) 85%
(b) 67%
(c) 145%
(d) 112%

Common Solution for the questions:
From the given information, we can make the following table:
To find the maximum difference let us take the minimum values from September and the maximum values from October.
From September = 960+360 = 1320.
From October = 3750 +3000 = 6750.
The difference = 6750-1320 = 5430.
The correct option is (b)
There is only one absolute decrease i.e. for E.
The correct option is (b)
Sale of F type tyres in October = 1950.
In September
Sale of A and C = 360 + 2640 = 3000
Sale of C and E= 2640 + 2040 = 4680
Sale of B and D= 1560 + 3000 = 4560
Sale of A and B=360 + 1560 = 1920
The correct option is (d)
