It's not typo. Both procured and sold are two different things. He procured to sell those shoes to retail. Additional budget is to procure more since sales were good.
Answer is D 1) budget spent is 45 *12 * 40 > 19000 so sufficient 2) 377 *12 = 4564 min shoes sold so > 4000 hence used more budget

Posted from my mobile device when I say typo, it means procured in that year is 45*12=540, while the sale is min 377 per month, so >377*12 or >4524 now does 540 procured and 4524 sold match. either procurement and sold within a year do not have any relation or there is a typo in numbers , and ofcourse anyone sitting for gmat would know procure and sell are two different things

Solution Given:• Adam is one among many employees of ABC ltd., who procures shoes at an average cost of $40. • His yearly procurement budget is $19,000. • He receives an additional budget of $3,000, if the total number of shoes sold by the company in a year exceeds 4,000 units. To find:• Did Adam receive the additional budget amount last year? Analysing Statement 1As per the information given in statement 1, Adam was able to procure 45 shoes on an average each month last year and he was given enough budget to procure all those shoes. • Therefore, the total spending in the year = 45 x 40 x 12 = $21600. As $21600 is more than $19000, he must have received the additional budget. Hence, statement 1 is sufficient to answer. Analysing Statement 2As per the information given in statement 2, last year, the lowest number of shoes sold by the company in a month was 377. If we assume 377 to be the minimum for all months, then total number of shoes sold in the year = 377 x 12 = 4524 This is more than 4000, hence, he must have received the additional budget. Hence, statement 2 is sufficient to answer. Therefore, the correct answer is option D. Answer: D
