To begin with, during 2010, the highly sold fruit was (""apple"") apple in the third term; however, it(?) consisted in indicating the smallest proportion in the beginning of the year. Meanwhile, the sale of the oranges was consistently higher in the end of the year, but the starting quarter was quite fortunate for the purchase of bananas.
