19. Recent estimates predict that between 1982 and 1995 the greatest increase in the number of people employed will be in the category of low-paying service occupations. This category, however, will not increase its share of total employment, whereas the category of high-paying service occupations will increase its share.

If the estimates above are accurate, which of the following conclusions can be drawn?

(A) In 1982 more people were working in low-paying service occupations than were working in high-paying service occupations.
(B) In 1995 more people will be working in high-paying service occupations than will be working in low-paying service occupations.
(C) Nonservice occupations will account for the same share of total employment in 1995 as in 1982.
(D) Many of the people who were working in low-paying service occupations in 1982 will be working in high-paying service occupations by 1995.
(E) The rate of growth for low-paying service occupations will be greater than the overall rate of employment growth between 1982 and 1995.

There is no mention of "high-paying service occupations in 1982" in the passage.

what rate of growth has to do here?

A.

share high paying > low paying, that means earlier (1982)
more people might be working in LP jobs so even if
many people join LP jobs the share remains low.

It should be A. it is a ratio problem can be clearified by some numerical examples. according to the question,

1. 1982 and 1995 the greatest increase in the number of people employed will be in the category of low-paying service occupations.
2. This category, however, will not increase its share of total employment, whereas the category of high-paying service occupations will increase its share. So, for example:

1982 low = 80 high = 20 total = 100
1985 low = 136 high = 64 total = 200
change (#) low = 56 high = 44 total = 100
change (%) low = 70 high = 220 total = 100

to hold the premises of the question, there must be greatest number of people in 1982 so that the increase in number of people is greter for low job and % increase is higher for hihg payig jobs. A says exactly the same.
