Contributed Commodities is 19.5%. By approximating the value to 20% will give you the estimated answer correctly as the gap is sufficiently large. How do I know? 1% = .6m likewise .5%= .3m and the difference between the answer is in the range of 2m.

Now 100% is 60m. 10% is 6m and 20% will be double of 10% = 12m.

Hence Ans = A

From the figure A,
Income provided by contributed community is 19.5% i.e 19.5% of 60 million = 11.7 million = nearly equal to 12 million i.e. option A
