I had difficulty deciphering the second question here gradually figured that it means that if the trends in 1996 and 2000 had continued in 2004, who would have been the winner in 2004. As Russia is trending upwards and US is trending downwards based on the trend line formed between 1996 and 2000, Russia would have the highest point on the line in 2004.

1) France - Since it is having least variation in its values
2) Russia - Since if we consider the values of 1996 & 2000 and then draw the graph further accordingly then it will have the highest values in 2004, we can check the same for other countries but logic here is to check the values for the countries which are already at top points in the graph
