Question: 362


According to the graph above, ABC Company showed the greatest change in profits between which 2 years?

A. 1996 and 1997
B. 1997 and 1998
C. 1998 and 1999
D. 1999 and 2000
E. 2000 and 2001

Correct Answer: D


D There's no need to do a lot of calculation here. Look for the two adjacent bars with the greatest positive difference between them. Since 1999 shows the least profits of all the years on the graph and 2000 shows the greatest profits of any year on the graph, 1999–2000 must have the greatest change in profit.
