The table given here shows production of five types of cars by a company in the year $2010$ to $2015$. Study the table and answer the question.

$\textbf{Production of Cars by a Company}$

$\begin{array}{|cl|cI|cI|cI|cI|cI|}\hline

In $2014:S = \dfrac{20}{80} \times 100\% = 25\%$

In $2014:R = \dfrac{13}{80} \times 100\% = 16.25\%$

In $2014:S = \dfrac{12}{80} \times 100\% = 15\%$

In $2014:S = \dfrac{21}{80} \times 100\% = 26.25\%$

$\therefore$ The production of $S$ type of car was $25\%$ of the total production of all types of cars during $2014.$

So, the correct answer is $(A).$
