This is a wordy question to confuse the students. However, if you stick out what you do really looking for it is easy.
probably, the most difficult part (at least for a non-native speaker) is to consider all the 3 categories which are mentioned in the question as bakery which is 6%
If we triple this amount it becomes 18%
However, the "jump" from 6 to 18 is 12. So we do have an increase in term of % of 112 which is our new whole amount.
\(\frac{18}{112= C}\)
Hope this helps.

Firstly, how does one know this is a change question? I was unfortunaley someone completely lost in the thicket of the wordiness of this question.
Secondly, Where does the 112 come from?
I get so nervous with GRE quantative questions that I mess up on what I should know.
hi...
we are given % of certain products that make up revenue for first quarter and we are given that rest all remain same except bakery which triples..
Now let us take total 100 % as 100 dollars revenue, out of which bakery is 6$..
now bakery revenue triples so from 6 it becomes 6*3=18$
and with rest same, the change in over all revenue is 100-6+18=112.. we have added the increase 18-6 to total..
so % of bakery = \(\frac{18}{112}*100\) = ~ 16%
