B

We want to find the difference between total weight and the rounded off weight.
So the weight of each piece is immaterial (as except the rounded portion, it is included in both figures).

The max you can round off in 1 piece is 0.5. So for the difference to be more than 10 pounds, there has to be at least 21 pieces each with 0.5 difference.

(A) weight of each piece less than 9.5 pounds. Not sufficient as we don't get total pieces
(B) 18 pieces. Less than 20, so difference is less than 10. Sufficient.
