Even i am getting it as $12 .

I think the trap if you don't pay attention people
think the salary raise from 30 ---> 87.5 and
87.5 - 30 = 57.5 * 40 gives 23.00 which is in the choice .

if you overlook question there is every possibility that we choose $23.00

am i right paul .

I also get $12.00. The OA seems to give you the opposite one.
