Solution:
Option(B) is correct

The percentage rise/fall in production from the previous year for flavour $Y$ during various years are:

In 1996 $=\left[\dfrac{60 - 55}{55} × 100\right]\% = 9.09\%$ (increase)

In 1997 $=\left[\dfrac{60 - 50}{60} × 100\right]\% = 16.67\%$ (decrease)

In 1998 $=\left[\dfrac{55 - 50}{55} × 100\right]\% = 10\%$ (increase)

In 1999 $=\left[\dfrac{55 - 50}{55} × 100\right]\% = 9.09\%$ (decrease)

In 2000 $=\left[\dfrac{55 - 50}{50} × 100\right]\% = 10\%$ (increase)

Maximum change is decrease of 16.67% during 1997
