In 1994 the number of offenses (stolen car) is 1,000,000. In 1996 you have a % decrease of -9.4.

So you need to subtract from 100% to calculate the % decrease.

1,000,000 * 90.6 = 90,600,000 which is actually B

Look at my pdfs along this post https://greprepclub.com/forum/gre-all-y ... -8898.html

All is in there. But the 5 increase or decrease is one of the basic rules to know for quant.

Hope this helps.

Regards
