1). y<9<10<x
2). 5<y<x<15

looks like E to me

it depends on if Revenue 94 is below 100 or above 100

yes its A.

No matter what Revenue 94 is

least rev 96 = [ Rev 94 x (91/100) x (110/100)] + an infinitessimally small amount

x>10 therefore 110/100 will only increase as x ---> infinity

also (100-y)/100 will only increase as y ----> 0

hence A is suff.
