Correct Answer : c ) 2002 – 03

Explanation :

Percentage increase will not occur for the year 2003 – 04.


Percentage increase for the year 2001 – 02

\(= \dfrac{70-50 } {50}×100=40\)%

Percentage increase for the year 2002 – 03

\(= \dfrac{100-70 } {70}×100=57\dfrac{1}{7}\)%

Percentage increase for the year 2004 – 05

\(= \dfrac{90-80 } {80}×100=12\dfrac{1}{2}\)%

Percentage increase for the year 2005 – 06

\(= \dfrac{140-90 } {90}×100=55\dfrac{5}{9}\)%

Thus, maximum increase in profit occurred in the year 2002 – 03

Hence, (c) is the correct answer.
