Approximately what percent of the total average annual income (before taxes) of retirees was spent on meats, poultry, and seafood (consumed at home)?
(A) 7%
(B) 10%
(C) 20%
(D) 23%
(E) 31%
If what we are looking for is the percentage of meats, poultry and seafood consumed AT home, how can it be answer A?

If you see the above graph,the percent of annual income for food away from home is 3% and the total percent of annual income for retirees is 40% .
Therefore, to calculate percent of the average annual income (before taxes) of retirees was spent on meats, poultry, and seafood (away from home) only =3/40
Multiply both numerator and denominator with 2.5, we get 7.5 percent out of 100 percent.Approx answer is 7%.
This explanation too is wrong since it is focused on food AWAY from home.
Is there an error in the question or in the OA?
