Answer the question on the basis of the following table.

The area under tea cultivation continuously decreased in all four years from $1996$ to $1999,$ by $10\%, 7\%, 4\%$ and $1\%$ respectively. In which year was tea productivity (production per unit of area) the highest?

1. $1999$
2. $1998$
3. $1997$
4. $1996$

Tea production is constantly increasing and the area under cultivation is decreasing.

Production of tea is maximum in the year 1999, also the area under cultivation is the least in 1999.
Tea productivity is the maximum for the year 1999.
