5) 30 to 49

We are told that in only age categories 30-54, do cancer death rate for females is more than males. So we only need to look for the answer within those categories.

In age group 30-34, there were more female deaths than male deaths for all the time periods.
In age group 35-39, there were more female deaths than male deaths for all the time periods.
In age group 40-44, there were more female deaths than male deaths for all the time periods.
In age group 44-49, there were more female deaths than male deaths for all the time periods.

However, in age group 50-54, there were more male deaths than female deaths in some time periods. So 50-54 cannot be part of the answer.

So the answer is 30 – 49
