The number of cars in 1990 are 2 million or 2000000
Similarly the number of accidents in 1991 is approximately 32*10000 = 320000

The difference between the number of cars in 1990 and number of accidents in 1991 is
2000000 - 320000 = 1680000 which is approximately 1.7 million(Option D)

In 1990, the number of cars was approximately 2 million, and in 1991, the number of accidents was approximately 340,000.

The difference between 2 million and 340,000 is about 1.7 million.
