Multiply $10 by 380,000 units, you know that there was at least$3.8M in profit. Does it exceed $4M? We don't know. Insufficient 2) Minimum profit made$5M/350,000units = $14.$14*380,000units=$5.32M. Exceeds$4M profit. Sufficient.

Right, choice A does not give everything you need to be certain. You could have exceeded that number, but maybe not. Choice B leaves nothing in doubt.
