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.
