Option A doesnt have enough information to study the percentage increase in both the decades. This alone is not sufficient.

Option B is enough.
If the population increases by the same amount in both decades
(eg)We have an increase of 10 out of total population of 100 in the first decade. The same increase of 10 out of 110 in the second decade, will clearly be lesser than the percentage increase in the first decade
