D...
In the seven cashed checks, for minimum value we need the 10\$ checks to be 3 and 50 \$ to be 4, which gives a total value of 230.
Hence lost money = 1500 - 230 = 1270...!!

Both B and D satisfy the statements. But only D is the minimum value.

So ans is D.

total=7 chkz...

10\$x+ 50\$(x+1) = 230 where x=3

x is taken 3 because... \$10 could be one more or less by one...

we can also get the ans 190\$ but that wud be not the LEAST as asked...
hence D = ans as given

hope that helps!

Have fun...
