Refer to the following Tables (A) and (B) to answer these questions.

Table A: Production of Inorganic Chemicals

Table B: Production of Organic Chemicals

Question 100

If productive volatility is defined as the percentage change in production, and it is known that any chemical whose productive volatility is greater than 5% is classified as highly volatile, then how many chemicals are not highly volatile (amongst organic chemicals)


Organic chemicals:

Glycol = 327387*1.05 < Production in 2003, so highly volatile

Formaldehyde = 140384*1.05>Production in 2003, so not volatile 

Fatty Acids = 99320*1.05<Production in 2003, so highly volatile

Aniline = decrease in production

Acetone =decrease in production

Acetic acid= 208921*1.05 < Production in 2003, so highly volatile

Anhydride = decrease in production

Benzene=  329000*1.05<Production in 2003, so highly volatile

Phenol = decrease in production

So, total value is 5.
