(1) The number of oranges sold at the fruit stand
yesterday was 5 more than the number of
apples.
(2) The total revenue from the sale of apples
at the fruit stand yesterday was $15.00 Let the cost of each orange be x therefore, the cost of apple = x+ 0.1 Let the number of Apple be A, and number of Orange be Q So.. 2) A(x+0.1) = 15 .. we don't know the number of orange sold. insufficient 1) Q = A + 5 We don't know the cost as well as the value of Q & A, insufficient Combining A & B We have to find the value of Qx + A(x+0.1) 2 equation, 3 variables.. Question cannot be solved.

As per my source the OA should be C , though i am myself getting E as the ans. Cheers Your answer is correct and the OA from the source is wrong. Consider following two cases for (1)+(2): A. Oranges are free and apples are for$0.1, so the revenue of $15 (150 apples) from the sale of apples would be the total revenue, which makes the revenue from the sale of oranges zero; B. Oranges are for$0.5 and apples are for $0.15, for this case clearly there will be some revenue from the sale of oranges.
