Rainfall(in mm) at six locations (1).png

The graph above shows rainfall at six locations given by alphabet A to F on Horizontal axis. The Vertical axis gives rainfall in multiples of 25mm in these locations in months of May, June and July of year 2022.
Based on the graph above, it can be said that rainfall in month of June accounts for the majority of rain in the three months in location [Dropdown Placeholder #1] and  also accounts for [Dropdown Placeholder #2] percentage of total combined rainfall in six locations in the month of June.­

­Hi chetan2u, I was wondering why how do we discard location B (also accounts for the majority of the rain and the total combined percentage of total combined rainfall is 18.75)? Maybe I did not understand the question.

Thank you!

Hey! So this is how I looked at it.

In location A, rainfall in June is 100mm and May + July is only 75mm (25 + 50 respectively). So it rained 25mm more in June than in both months.

In location B, rainfall in June is 150mm and May + July is 150mm (75 + 75 respectively). So as compared to both May and July together, June did not have a majority of rainfall.

The other locations you'll notice that May and July's rainfall together was more than June's.

So A is the answer for the first field.

For the second field, the total rainfall in June across all the locations is 800mm. Location A's % is 100/800*100 = 12.5

So 12.5 is the answer for the second field.

Hope this helps! Let me know if my approach is incorrect or I misinterpreted the question.­

I fell for the trap and picked F and assumed it was June contributed to max rain in which region
second attempt I got A and 12.5%

­Based on the graph above, it can be said that rainfall in month of June accounts for the majority of rain in the three months in location [A] and  also accounts for [12.5] percentage of total combined rainfall in six locations in the month of June.

June => the dark blue one

Location A: June accounts for more than 50% of the total (May + July < June)

(Location B: June = 50% (May + July = June)
For all other locations, June < 50% (May + July > June))

Total rainfall of all locations in June
100 + 150 + 75 + 125 + 150 + 200 = 800

% Location A - June = $$\frac{100}{800} = 0.125$$ = 12.5%
