For simple calculation purpose, we can assume profit in 2004 -> 100x so 2005 -> 110x , 2006 -> 121x , 2007 -> 121x*1.1
(1)
121x + 121x*1.1 = \$10,164,00 ,we can solve x and hence 100x as well. - (1) sufficient
(2)
121x*1.1 = 110x + \$924,000,,we can solve x and hence 100x as well. - (2) sufficient
Option D

They are asking about Profits in 2004. How can we assume profits between 2003 -2004 is also 10%. ?

The question specifies that profit in years 2005-07 have grown 10% over the previous year which means profit in 2005 is 10% more than profit in 2004.

Option D is correct I believe
