The actual decrease from last year to this year is given as $1.5mn

To Find : the Percentage decrease

St 1 :

If profits had decreased by $2mn, the percentage decrease would have been 40%

So, Last year's profit = \(\frac{100}{40}\) * 2 = $5mn

So, Actual percent decrease from last year to this year = \(\frac{1.5}{5}\) * 100 = 30%

Sufficient

St 2 :

This is straightforward

This Year's Profit = $3.5mn

Last year's profit = 3.5 + 1.5 = 5

Percent decrease =\(\frac{1.5}{5}\) * 100 = 30%

Sufficient

Choice D
