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?

C. $0.2 D.$0.3

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.

Logic would imply that you'd get a discount on single unit of candy, but the question does not specify this.
