A. \$1.75
B. \$2.25
C. \$2.50
D. \$2.75
E. \$3.00

Insurance fee of 1st and 2nd packages =\$0.75+\$0.75=\$1.50 (Since individual package content worth \$25.00 or less)
Insurance fee of 3rd package =\$1.00 (Since package with contents worth over \$25.00)

Total insurance fee=\$1.50+\$1.00 =\$2.50

Ans. (C)

+1 for C.

Insurance fee of Package 1 = \$0.75 (Content worth less than \$25.00)
Insurance fee of Package 2 = \$0.75 (Content worth \$25.00)
Insurance fee of Package 3 = \$1.00 (Contents worth over \$25.00)

Total insurance fee= \$0.75 + \$0.75 + \$1.00 =\$2.50

Hence, C.

A. \$1.75
B. \$2.25
C. \$2.50
D. \$2.75
E. \$3.00

Note :

1. For any package worth \$25 or less, charge is 0.75

2. For any package worth more than \$25, charge is 1.

Total charge :

18.25......................0.75

25.........................0.75

127.50...................1

So, ( 0.75 +0.75 +1 ) = 2.50.

The best answer is C.

A. \$1.75
B. \$2.25
C. \$2.50
D. \$2.75
E. \$3.00

For the two lower value packages, the insurance fee is 2 x 0.75 = \$1.50. For the highest value package, the insurance fee is \$1.00. Thus, the total insurance fee is 1.50 + 1.00 = \$2.50.

Answer: C
