Division A's percent of total income exceeded its percent of total expenses by 38%-35%=3%;
Division B's percent of total income did not exceeded its percent of total expenses, 12%-26%=-14%;
Division C's percent of total income exceeded its percent of total expenses by 20%-14%=6%;
Division D's percent of total income exceeded its percent of total expenses by 30%-25%=5%;

Since division C's difference is the greatest then we should calculate the amount of this difference in $: 0.20*1,560,000-0.14*495,000=~240,000.

Answer: E.

Thanks .....

I resolve it after 2 minutes........for this particular problem is good (on average) or is too long ??

what is your thought ???


Since this problem has quite confusing wording and after you get through it you should calculate approximate value of 0.20*1,560,000-0.14*495,000=~0.20*1,600,000-0.15*500,000=320,000-75,000=245,000 then I'd say that 2 minutes is not that long, after all.
