The percentage increase in the sales in 1993 over the previous year was maximum for which of the following categories of vehicles?

C) Jeeps

D) Light Commercial Vehicles

Option D

### Explanation:

To find the percentage difference divide the difference in sales(1993 sale -1992 sale) by the previous 1992 sale

Difference in percentage of Cars $=\frac{ Car sale in 1993 - Car sale in 1992}{Car sale in 1992} = \frac{32}{248}= 12.9 % \uparrow$

Difference in percentage of Heavy Vehicles $=\frac{ Heavy Vehicles sale in 1993 - Heavy Vehicles sale in 1992}{ Heavy Vehicles sale in 1992}$

$= \frac{3}{72}= 4 % \uparrow$

Difference in percentage of Light Commercial Vehicle $=\frac{ Light Commercial Vehicle sale in 1993 - Light Commercial Vehicle sale in 1992}{Light Commercial Vehicle sale in 1992}$

$= \frac{14}{79}= 17 % \uparrow$

Difference in percentage of Jeeps $=\frac{ Jeeps sale in 1993 - Jeeps sale in 1992}{Jeeps sale in 1992} = \frac{31}{210}= 14.7 % \uparrow$

So, Light Commercial has the highest percentage increase.
