At least 10 golf tees for each member of his foursome = total of at least 4*10 = 40 tees.

2 packages of the generic golf tees, that are packaged by the dozen = 2*12 = 24 tees.

So, Bill must by at least 16 Aero tees. They come by the pair, hence he must by at least 16/2 = 8 packages of Aero flight tees.

Answer: C.

total tshirts to be purchased = 4* 10 ; 40
max 2 dozen of generic = 24 ; left 40-24 ; 16
pair shirt packs ; 16/2 ; 8
