The number of union membership raised between 2008 and 2010. However, the percentage of union memberships to total workers remained constant.

Just ask yourself the question: How would that be possible? Only if the total number of workers goes up the percentage can be held equal if the number of union memberships rises at the same time.

Thats precisely what Option B says, hence correct.
