Ans : B.

in paradox question,choose the option to make sure both the parts of the argument are true.

here,we need to focus on increased profit even though the operating cost is considerably increased because of increased min wage. what if most of the customer of this retailer shop are those who earn min wages or depend on those who earn min wage.then after increasing the min wage,their buying power will in crease considerably,and thus the retailer shop will have higher rev and thus higher profit.this is wat option B states.

rest of the option are focussing only on the first part : increased min wages,which can not solve the paradox.
