For the First 9 months
R1 = 5 * 10^6 * 7.2 = 36 * 10^6
For the next 3 months
R2 = 10 * 10^6 * 1.25 = 12.5 * 10^6

Total revenue = R1 + R2 = 48.5 * 10^6

Total no of shares = 10 * 10^6

So average annual earnings per share = 48.5 * 10^6/10 * 10^6 = 4.85 $

Ans C

Purchase price = 60$
SP = 60$ + .25 SP
.75SP = 60$ SP = 80 $

He give a discount of 20 %

The final price = 80 * .8 = 64

Profit = 64 - 60 = 4 $
