#### Solution

Absolute Change in Office Expenses = Office Expenses of Current Year - Office Expenses of Previous Year
Absolute Change in Office Expenses = 5,000 - 4,000 = Rs.1,000

% Change in Office Expenses = "Absolute Change in Office Expenses"/"Expenses of Previous Year" x 100

% Change in Office Expenses = [1,000]/[4,000] x 100

% Change in Office Expenses = 25%

Absolute Change in Sales = Sales Of Current Year - Sales Of Previous Year

Absolute Change in Sales = 200,000 - 100,000 = Rs. 100,000

% Change in Sales = "Absolute Change in Sales"/"Sales Of Previous Year" x 100

% Change in Sales = [100,000]/[100,000] x 100

% Change in Sales = 100%
