Holiday receipts—the total sales recorded in the fourth quarter of the year—determine the economic success or failure of many retail businesses. Camco, a retailer selling just one camera model, is an excellent example. Camco's holiday receipts, on average, account for a third of its yearly total receipts and about half of its yearly profits.

If the statements above are true, which of the following must also be true about Camco on the basis of them?

(A) Its fixed expenses per camera sold are higher during the fourth quarter than for any of the other three quarters.

(B) It makes more profit during the first and third quarters combined than during the fourth quarter.

(C) Its per-camera retail price is lower, on average, during the fourth quarter than during any one of the first three quarters.

(D) It makes less profit, on average, for a given dollar amount of sales during the first three quarters combined than during the fourth quarter.

(E) The per-camera price it pays to wholesalers is higher, on average, during the fourth quarter than during any of the other three quarters.

D.

if total annual sales receipt 100 and profit is 20%

last quarter: sales 33 profit 10 or profit: ~30 %

first three quarters: total receipt: 66, profit 10 avg profit% = ~15 %

Clear D.

1/3 of sales in Q4, but 1/2 of profit in Q4.

Means that they are making more profit during Q4 when compared to Q1,Q2 and Q3.
