x^2 /2
200-x/2
50x +x^2/4
150x -x/4

x-200 is the raise in price.
So for every $4 raise 2 less are sold
hence for x-200 no of coats sold less = (x-200) * 2 / 4 = (x/2-100)
Now you will have 100 - (x/2-100) coats sold = 200-x/2 coats are sold
if price x then revenue = (200-x/2) * x = 200x-x^2/2

E is the answer.
