If that throws up nothing I'd look at each sales value figure as a proportion of GDP and see if any figure looks odd.
Then if necessary I'd work out the sales value per head of poulation.
but in spotting duff values
the five countries have paired data
four pairs will be consistent
one billion - - - two billion
five billion - - - ten billion
four billion - - - eight billion
half a billion - -- fifty billion
clearly the fourth one in th set is NOT consistent
so you have to identify the inconsistent pair and suggest why - arithmetic error, cultural or whatever
