The pie chart shows the distribution of New York market share by volume of different computer companies in 2005.
Number of units sold in 2005 in New York = 1,500
Value of units sold in 2005 in New York = US \$1,650,000.

Question:
Over the period 2005-2006, if sales (value-wise) of IBM PC's increased by 50% and of Apple by 15% assuming that PC sales of all other computer companies remained the same, by what percentage (approximately) would the PC sales in New York (value-wise) increase over the same period?

Option A):
None of these
Option B):
18 %
Option C):
16.1 %
Option D):
14 %

Correct Answer is Option C):
16.1 %

Explanation:
If we assume the total sales to be 100 in the first year, IBM's sales would go up by 50% (from 28 to 42) contributing an increase of 14 to the total sales value.

Similarly, Apple's increase of 15% would contribute an increase of 2.1 to the total sales value. The net change would be 14 + 2.1 on 100. (i.e., 16.1%)
