c

is 5lakh- C(cost total) >1.5lakh?
or is total cost 'C' < 3.5 lakh........(A)

from A, C= 3M
but C=L+M
so, L=2M.....(1), insuff

from B,
5lakh-C > L..........(2)
we still dont know total cost
insuff.

together,
from 1 and 2,
5 lakh -C > 2M
5 lakh-3M>2M
OR M< 1 lakh
so max C can be < 3 lakh
so A is proved..

Cost of Labor= L
Cost of Material = M
Company's Total Cost = L+M

Total paid to Company = 500,000
Net Profit = \$500,000 - (L+M)****company's profit

Statement 1.
L+M = 3M
-> L = 2M

Statement 2.
*** \$500,000-(L+M) > L
-> from statement 1
we have 500,000 -3M > 2M
100,000 > M and 200,000 > 2M(for L cost)
Total company cost L+M < 300,000
or L+M = 300,000 -b where b > 0
therefore profit is

\$500,000-300,000+b
= 200,000 + b
> \$150,000

Option C
