The Condition is he sells twice the number of product A than product B

Let the number of product B he sold is 'n'

25*2*n + 30*n = 50n+30n = 80n.

Therefore the answer must be a product of 80n

400 = 5 * 80n

Therefore the answer is E.

Selling Price of Product A = $25
Selling price of Product B = $30

Let the no. of product B sold = x
No. of product A sold = 2x

Now, as per given in question

25 * 2x + 30 * x = 80 * x , where x is an integer.

80 * 5 = 400

only (E) satisfy the equation .

Hi! May I ask u? Why you multiple 80n with 5? Where do you get 5? (Sorry for my bad English :') )
