It is B.

One way of doing multiple choice questions is by going through each option methodically. Ask yourself if it is plausible as the answer given the information.

E.g. A can't be the answer. Between 2010 and 2011, the price fell.

See if you can go through B, C and D in a similar way to see how each one couldn't be the answer (for C and D) and how B is the answer.
