Official Explanation

The injuries and illness reported decreased more rapidly from_________than from 2003 to 2004.

The rate of injury and illness reported is represented by the slope of the line connecting the points. Consider each pair of points separately: 2004 to 2005 and 2006 to 2007 have essentially the same slope as 2003 to 2004; 2008 to 2009 decreases more steeply, but 2010 to 2011 is flat, neither increasing nor decreasing.

The average rate of decrease in injuries and illness was closest to that from _________.

The average rate of decrease would be represented by the slope of the dotted line, which matches 2003 to 2004 almost perfectly. As the years pass, the line connecting two adjacent points changes, slightly at first and significantly later on.
