Answer

The answer is below.

Work Step by Step

A percent increase of a 100% means that the original value doubled. Because the original value can increase by more than this, percent increase can be above 100%. However, nothing can ever lose more that all of its value (a 100% decrease), so percent decrease cannot exceed 100%.
