As it's visible on the chart, in year 1995, 50% of the attendances are girls and 50% are boys.
So option A

In 1995, ratio of boys and girls = 50%:50% = 1:1
=> Boys = Girls = 358

IMO A

Clearly the percentage is only equal in 1995. Hence A.
Since it is fairly straight forward question make sure to go through other years as well. If you're confident mark A and move on

Notice that in this question, since we are given the percentages of boys and girls attending the conference, the number of participants is irrelevant; we only need to look for the year where the percentages of boys and girls are both 50. That would mean, regardless of the number of participants, half of the participants are boys and half are girls, which means an equal number of boys and girls. We see that a 50% participation for both genders was observed in year 1995.

Answer: A
