Why not for both combine, we will have 10,000+40,000=50,000 out of all other cities, this is the smallest growth?

Among all the four cities in 1950 we do have a decrease (red line), in 2000 we do have an increase. As such, the least value is w = 10000

A is the answer

I thought it would be 10000 because X grew only 10000 from 1950 to 2000 where as Y and Z grew 20000 and 30000 respectively. But then W decreased by 40000 so I chaged it to D. Can some one explain why do we not consider W?

We would not consider because W did not grow. W sharank in size during this time period.
