Each pound or a fraction of pound upto 10 pounds. I interpreted this as "upto additional 10 pounds" so... 17.5 + 10(3.6) + 13(1.2)...however there is no answer choice with this result. So the next step was to check for 9 additional pounds.

Is this GMAT wording?

Yeah I missed that, and multiplied 2.6*10 instead of by 9, but still given that answer choice were split apart I came up with C.

Will need to improve in that anyway

Cheers!

PS. But to all the rest, yes this is definitely ambiguous and bad quality question. Wouldn't try it again

Don't waste your time, it ain't worth it
