Hi All,

We're told that apples cost X dollars per M dozen. We're asked for the cost (in dollars) to buy N apples. This question can be solved by TESTing VALUES.

To start, a 'dozen' is 12, so it would make sense to choose a value for X that is a multiple of 12....

IF....

X=12 and M=2

We're spending $12 to buy (2)(12) = 24 apples, which gives us a cost of $0.50/apple

N = 4

Thus, the cost of 4 apples is (4)($0.50) = $2. Thus, we're looking for an answer that equals 2 when we plug X=12, M=2 and N=4 into the answers. There's only one answer that matches...

Final Answer:

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
