Answer is C

From statement 2, we can find the total earnings for the last 25 years. From the information given in the question statement we can find the total earnings for the first 5 years.

Therefore, adding these two info we will get the total earnings for the entire 30 years.

From statement 1, we can find the total earnings for the first 25 years.

If the total earnings for the first 25 years is subtracted from the total earnings for the entire 30 years, we will have the total earnings for the last 5 years and the average total annual earnings during the last 5 years.
