Hey when I doing Kaplan test I just marked C bcos I was short of time

7.9ab7
My thoughts-
From 1) we have
a can be 3 or 4
If a is 3 then b>=5
if a is 4 then b<=4

From 2) we have a is atleast 4. No information about b

1) + 2)
a is 4 and b<=4. But then b must be highest since The dollar value when rounded to nearest tenth of a cent is 9.500. So I got the value as 9.9447

It doesn't work either ! You can see the discrepancy. I am thinking if I missed a puzzle piece.
