1) Only California, Florida, Georgia and Illinois qualify and out of these only California, Florida and Illinois have experienced a decline. So the answer is YES

2) Only Florida, Georgia and Illinois qualify.. However, for Florida almost half of the failures has occurred in 2010. So the answer is NO.

1.Atleast 1 failure in 2008 and atleast 10 failure in 2010: 5 states {California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois and 21 other states and UT}
Of these 5, # that experienced a decline in number of failures from 2010 to 2011 = 3 {California, Florida, Illinois}
TRUE

2.Across the US states and territories that each experienced more than 45 bank failures in the time frame displayed, less than a third of all bank failures that occurred during the time frame displayed occurred in 2010.
# greater than 45 failures = 3 {Florida, Georgia and Illinois}
Total # failures of F,G and I in the given timeframe = 180 and 1/3rd of this = 60
Total # failures of F,G and I in 2010 = 66
66 is greater than 1/3rd of 180
hence FALSE

3.The total number of bank failures in the 44 US states and territories included in the table grew from 2009 to 2010.
# failures in 2009 = 137
# failures in 2010 = 157
TRUE
