Solution

The correct option is B $$1,165$$
As per data seen in table data total employees of $$2012$$ is $$1670, 2013$$ is $$1890$$ and $$2014$$ is $$2110$$ work in pepdico
Then difference of total employees $$2012$$ and $$2013=1890-1670=220$$
And difference of total employees $$2013$$ and $$2014=2110-1890=220$$
As per trend the total employees $$2015=2110+220=2330$$
As per given in question, male and female employees decreases and increases by $$5\%$$ respectively.
In $$2014$$ male employees are $$55\%$$. 
Then male employees in $$2015$$ are $$55-5=50\%$$
Then total male employees work in PepdiCo in $$2015=$$ $$\dfrac{50}{100}\times 2330=1165$$
