I think B should be the answer.Could you please verify and certify the answer

Choice (C) is correct. The total assessed value has decreased. The percentage of assessed value that was paid as property taxes to the city has not changed. If the total amount has decreased and the percentage of that amount has not changed, then the total collected must have decreased.

As for choice (B), we have no idea what has happened to the other sources of revenue. What if those other sources have decreased much more than revenue from property taxes? In that case, the percentage of Altonville’s yearly revenue that comes from money collected in property taxes may have INCREASED over the past four years. Because of this possibility, choice (B) must be eliminated.

B. The percentage of Altonville’s yearly revenue that comes from money collected in property taxes has declined steadily over the past four years.

The % can remain the same where all other incomes decrease. (EX: 5/50= 10% whereas 10/100=10%.
