Hi,
I really confused about this question. For the correct answer C, I don't know why "down from nearly three-quarters only a decade ago" is correct. And for the entire sentence, I don't know if the population of non-Hispanic Whites reduce from nearly three-quarters to less than a half? And minority means small part, I don't think three-quarters of non-Hispanic Whites are small parts. Please help~
