I believe it is C.

If the investment is assumed to be for 1 year then A is correct but I guess we cannot assume that

Equation is this

x(1.06) + 2x(1.08) = 550 compute x from this and the money made by 6% investment is 0.06*x

The answer shown in my book is "A".
In my idea, annual income means just only interest , not principal. Since it's just simple interest rate, the interest should be the same for every year.
