Total Price is less than 30. So max a person can buy for is $29.

1st Item- $3. The remaining amount is $26. The person can buy 26 items. So total item can be brought is 27. Answer is C.

I. With $29 dollars (<$30) I can purchase 1 pen for $3, and the remaining balance $(29-3) = $26, can purchase more $26/$1 = 26 pens; Total quantity = 1+26 = 27 pens.

key here is "total price that is less than $30"
so, the closest price that is less than 30 is $29

$29 - $3 (first item) leaves us with $26
Since all items after the first is equal to $1, then the number of items other than the first is 26 = $26
26 + 1(first item purchased for 3) = 27

therefore the answer is (c) 27
