Question: 155

1.

Between which two years did Product X have the largest percent increase in profit?

A. 2000 and 2001
B. 2001 and 2002
C. 2002 and 2003
D. 2003 and 2004
E. 2004 and 2005

Correct Answer: A

Explanation:

A. From 2000 to 2001, Product X had an increase of $50,000 in profit, from an original $100,000. That's a 50-percent increase. It had a greater dollar increase ($60,000) from 2003 to 2004, but that was from a start of $220,000, and $60,000 is much less than 50 percent of $220,000.
