For any two IT business activities, A & B, year X dominates year Y if:a) The IT business in activity A, in the year X, is greater than or equal to the IT business, in activity A in the year Y,b) The IT business in activity B, in the year X, is greater than or equal to the IT business in activity B in the year Y andc) There should be strict inequality in the case of at least one activity.For the IT hardware business activity, which one of the following is not true?

Solution

1995-96 = 1037+35 = 1072

1996-97 = 1050+286 = 1336

1997-98 = 1205+201 = 1406

1998-99 = 1026+4 = 1030

We clearly see from the table that for IT hardware business activity 1996-97 dominates 1998-99. Hence option D is false.
