Quantitative Reasoning, Set 2

19 out of 20.

My only mistake was-- as usual-- a dumb one, once again involving a Data Interpretation problem. In this particular instance, I assumed that "biggest loss" (the picture showed a pair of bar graphs tracking the average daily sales of two competing Italian fast food places) meant "biggest percentage loss," when in fact it meant simply "biggest raw-number loss."

As my buddy John the Kiwi would say: piss, fuck, diddle.
