Solution

Option A:

In 2011, number of Refrigerators sold =60

number of Cell phones sold = 336

$$\Rightarrow$$  number of refrigerators sold as a percentage of number of cell phones sold = $$\frac{60}{336}\times 100 = 17.85$$

Option B:

In 2012, number of Refrigerators sold = 79

number of Cell phones sold = 404

$$\Rightarrow$$  number of refrigerators sold as a percentage of number of cell phones sold = $$\frac{79}{404}\times 100$$ = 19.5

Option C:

In 2013,number of Refrigerators sold = 93

number of Cell phones sold = 411

$$\Rightarrow$$  number of refrigerators sold as a percentage of number of cell phones sold = $$\frac{93}{411}\times 100$$ = 22.6

Option D:

In 2014, number of Refrigerators sold = 112

number of Cell phones sold = 442

$$\Rightarrow$$  number of refrigerators sold as a percentage of number of cell phones sold = $$\frac{112}{442}\times 100$$ = 25.33

Hence Option D is the correct answer.
