Let the cost of each orange be x
therefore, the cost of apple = x+ 0.1

Let the number of Apple be A, and number of Orange be Q
So..
2) A(x+0.1) = 15 .. we don't know the number of orange sold. insufficient
1) Q = A + 5
We don't know the cost as well as the value of Q & A, insufficient
Combining A & B
We have to find the value of Qx + A(x+0.1)
2 equation, 3 variables..
Question cannot be solved.

Hi,

Can anyone confirm the OA and the method? As per my source the OA should be C , though i am myself getting E as the ans.

Cheers

Your answer is correct and the OA from the source is wrong.

Consider following two cases for (1)+(2):
A. Oranges are free and apples are for $0.1, so the revenue of$15 (150 apples) from the sale of apples would be the total revenue, which makes the revenue from the sale of oranges zero;
B. Oranges are for $0.5 and apples are for$0.15, for this case clearly there will be some revenue from the sale of oranges.
