In a certain candy store in New York, each orange candy costs 30 cents and a strawberry candy costs 40 cents. The store gives an offer that if a customer buys three candies then the cheapest amongst them will not be charged for. What is the difference in the discount received by a customer who buys 2 strawberry candies and an orange candy, and a customer who buys 2 orange candies and a strawberry candy?
It does not matter what the combination is!!! The orange candy will always be the cheapest one and one of the orange candy will be given free. The discount in both the cases is therefore 30 cents and the discount difference is 0. The correct option is A.
