Here the graph tells us the Gross Federal debt as a percent of Gross domestic product so in that case any value over 100 will be the answer.

From the graph we can see the year 1945, 1946 and 1947 exceed 100, so the answer is option A

gross federal debt shd it be a combination of both public and government accounts? In other words, should we add the percentages of dark and light grey and see which ones go above 100?

I understand what you are thinking but I think the answer is indeed 3 because the black bar chart is not infront of the gray but below it!

So the top of the grey bar is already a sum of black and grey.

I think the question shpuld have been worded better.
