The growth recorded in 2009 =Â $$\frac{\left(164474-141750\right)}{141750}\times\ 100=16.03\%$$

The growth recorded in 2010 =Â $$\frac{\left(204525-164474\right)}{164474}\times\ 100=24.35\%$$

Eastern Europe:

The growth recorded in 2008 =Â $$\frac{\left(185110-152764\right)}{152764}\times\ 100=21.17\%$$

The growth recorded in 2009 was negative.

The growth recorded in 2010 = $$\frac{\left(227650-183475\right)}{183475}\times\ 100=24.08\%$$

West Asia:

The growth recorded in 2008 = $$\frac{\left(210542-171661\right)}{171661}\times\ 100=22.64\%$$

The growth recorded in 2009 was negative.

The growth recorded in 2010 = $$\frac{\left(235317-204843\right)}{204843}\times\ 100=14.8\%$$

East Asia:

The growth recorded in 2010 = $$\frac{\left(411947-322797\right)}{322797}\times\ 100=27.6\%$$

Since the growth recorded in 2010 in East Asia is the highest,

the correct option is D.
