Let's say least populated district (say A) has population = x

The maximum any other city can have = x(1+10%) = x(1+1/10) = 11/10x

Now in order for A to have least population, other cities should have equal distribution, which is = 11/10x

Now 1 city has population x and 10 cities have population as 11/10x

so, 1 X x + 10 X 11/10x = 132000 ---> x = 11000

Hence (E) is the answer.
