    A. Answer : (4) 2.

    Explanation:-
    The sum of unit consumption in 2012 = 600 + 700 + 400 + 300 + 200
    = 2200
    Then, the average of unit consumption in 2012 = 2200/5
    = 440
    2 months in 2012,  the consumption of electric units was more than the average units consumption in that year.

    Hence, the answer is (4) 2.

    B. Answer: 

    Explanation: –
    The total units consumption in the year 2012 = 600 + 700 + 400 + 300 + 200
    = 2200
    The total units consumption in the year 2013  = 550 + 500  + 400 + 350 + 450
    = 2250

    Increase consumption = 2250 – 2200
    = 50
    Increase in percent = 50 x 100/2200
    = 2.27 %

    Hence, the answer is (4) 2.27 %.

    C. Answer:  (3) November

    Explanation:-
    The maximum difference in the units consumption between these two years has been found in November = 450 – 200
    = 250

    Hence, the answer is (3) November.

    D. Answer: (3) 450 units

    Explanation:-
    The sum of  electric consumption by the family during these 5 months in 2013 = 550 + 500  + 400 + 350 + 450
    = 2250

    Then, the average of  electric consumption by the family during these 5 months in 2013 = 2250/5
    = 450

    Hence, the answer is (3) 450 units.
