Since the dinner is shared by 7 people and costs $100,
F(Fred's contribution) = 48 > L(Lois's contribution)

Since everyone shared a different integer amount no less than $2,
the other 5 employees can contribute $2,$3,$4,$5, and $6 at the minimum
Since Lois has to contribute greater than the other 5 employees, I($10 contribution) is not possible.

For the other 2 cases, we have the following scenarios
Case II : 48,20,12,8,6,4,2
Case III : 48,30,8,5,4,3,2

However, Option E(II and III) is a possibility for the amount of cost shared by Lois, in dollars
