Solution

The correct option is **B** Clothes

To determine the which product has reduced the most from Day 1 to Day 2, subtract the sales of the product on Day 2 from the sales of that product in Day 1.

Sale of grocery on Day 1 = 800 items

Sale of grocery on Day 2 = 600 items

Difference = 800 - 600 = 200 items

Hence, the sales of grocery is reduced by 200 items.

Sale of sports on Day 1 = 800 items

Sale of sports on Day 2 = 1000 items

Difference = 1000 - 800 = 200 items

Hence, the sales of sports is increased by 200 items.

Sale of clothes on Day 1 = 1000 items

Sale of clothes on Day 2 = 600 items

Difference = 1000 - 600 = 400 items

Hence, the sales of clothes is reduced by 400 items.

Sale of gadgets on Day 1 = 400 items

Sale of gadgets on Day 2 = 600 items

Difference = 600 - 400 = 200 items

Hence, the sales of sports is increased by 200 items.

∴ Clothes has shown the maximum reduction in sales.
