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

&\text{Year/Type} & \text{2010} & \text{2011} & \text{2012} & \text{2013} & \text{2014} & \text{2015} & \text{Total} \\ \hline &\text{P} & \text{8} & \text{20} & \text{16} & \text{17} & \text{21} & \text{6} & \text{88} \\ \hline &\text{Q} & \text{16} & \text{10} & \text{14} & \text{12} & \text{12} & \text{14} & \text{78}\\ \hline

&\text{R} & \text{21} & \text{17} & \text{16} & \text{15} & \text{13} & \text{8} & \text{90} \\ \hline

&\text{Total} & \text{74} & \text{71} & \text{75} & \text{90} & \text{80} & \text{86} & \text{476} \\ \hline \end{array}$

In which year the production of cars of all types taken together was approximately equal to average during the period ?

- $2010$
- $2012$
- $2014$
- $2015$

Average of the total prod. during the period $ = \dfrac{\text{Sum of the total production of cars}}{\text{total number of years}} = \dfrac{476}{6} = 80.$

Hence In $2014$ year , the production of cars of all types taken together will be approximately equal to the average of the total production during the period .

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