Rank in order (Highest to Lowest) change in operating expenses from year 1 to year 2

Question: Rank in order from highest (1) to lowest (5) in terms of the change in operating expenses

Key: m = million

operating expenses:

A - year1=12.8m & year2=9.9m

B - year1=25.1m & year2=46.4m

C - year1=32.8m & year2=35.6m

D - year1=50.6m & year2=48.8m

E - year1=33.9m & year2=53m

My answer:

1) A

2) D

3) C

4) E

5) B

Is that order correct?

Is the change in op. Expenses for A from year 1 to year 2 a positive one and if so would that rank higher than B ,which the op. Expenses went up.

I do not know whether I should work out the percentage change from year 1 to year 2 then rank it or just the difference in the figure change from year 1 to year 2 according to the question asked.

Would really appreciate someone's help. Thanks in advance.
