In Country Q, 6 different models of passenger automobiles are assembled. The graph shows the number of each model assembled, in thousands, for each of the years 2006–2010.
Select the option from each drop-down menu that creates the most accurate statement based on the information provided.
Rounded to the nearest 5 percent, the number of Model Y cars assembled in Country Q increased by percent from 2006 to 2010.
From 2007 to 2008, the increase in the number of cars assembled in Country Q was greatest for Model .
For question A you can actually find the answer by approximation, to save some time.
The number of Y cars in 2006 is approximately 140. To reach 215 in 2010, the production increased by 75 cars. That's a little more than 50% of what was produced in 2006 (50% of 140 is 70) so the best answer must be B.
Bunuel - Bunuel , requesting your help to solve the second Question of this Question.In the O.G all models are given in the answer options
I am getting Model X as the answer
We need to find the model for which the number of cars manufactured in 2008 vs. 2007 is the highest. We need to compute the number of cars, not percentage, so it is a straight forward subtraction.
Not sure if this is a GMAT trick or not but I was tricked into calculating the % change for the second statement. Maybe because the first statement asked us to find that. I seem to make a lot of misreading mistakes like this in Graphs questions.

Same here.
I ended up calculating the percentage increase between 07-08 and marking X. Seems like this is a common error that happens in such questions.

Something similar I did here - https://gmatclub.com/forum/this-is-a-ti ... 20731.html , very well knowing the answer to both the questions, in the 1st question i marked 8 months - later realised its 8 quarters and not months. so 8 x 3 = 24 . Seems like we have to be cautious of these mistakes.
To calculate -> 76/139 -> consider 70/140 -> 50%. Numerator is greater and denominator is slightly lesser -> so the actual fraction must be greater than 50%. 10% of 139 is 13.9 so 6 must be slightly less than 5% (slightly less than half of 13.9 or in other words 14). So around 55% ( plus or minus 1% in which case nearest 5% is still 55%)
I was totally shocked to find this question in the hard category when going through the official guide so I looked it up here on Gmail club and to my surprise it’s still an 85% level difficulty question. I don’t think that I’m particularly smart but this question seems relatively straightforward. Simply find the percent change for one and for two find the one that had the largest change. They seem to be basic concepts that I would think would belong in the easy category. In comparison to some of the other more challenging data insights questions you’d be lucky to see something like this.
Im quite confused when it says "rounded to the nearest 5%" --> what does it mean?
I calculated the number at it gave me 54.xx% but I got confused by the term "rounded to the nearest "5%". I mistakenly thought that it needs to be rounded to -/+ 5%, therefore I chose "50%" instead of "55%". Can someone please enlighten? Thank you!
