I think the answer is B.

As per statement 2, if we take M as either 10 or 30, and N as remaining number, then we can find the answer. We get unique values for M and N.

get B.

Let orig price be P
In 1992: Price = (1+m/100)P

In 1993 price = (1+m/100 + (1+m/100)*n/100)P

Thus knowing M/100+N/100+MN/10000 will help solve
