We are told that lower percentage of young families but high sales of kid's cycles.

Let's us think some probable assumption.

1. What if these young families gift bicycles to others ( This shows that they won't prefer other gifts as options :lol: )
2. They manufacture best cycles in the nation.

Option A is some what close to our thinking. Other options are out of scope.

There is lower proportion of young families, but bicycles are sold more than nation's average. The choice A explains why bicycles are sold more in the county.
