From 1 and 2 we can find the number of roses produced during 1980 and there by we can find no of roses produced during 1981. so the ans in C

Let the no of roses produced in 1980 = x
the no of roses produced in 1981 = 1.4x = x+10
=> 0.4x = 10
x = 25
so the no of roses produced in 1981 = 25 + 10 = 35
