Using "annual" and "a year" is redundant as they mean the same thing. Thus options A and C are out.

Option D changes the meaning by changing cost to costs.

Option E changes the meaning by removing "annual" or "per year" after 3600$. We do not know whether 3600$ is an annual or bi monthly amount.

Thus, option B is the correct answer.

Actually, "in over" is a common word pairing in English. It occurs when the word "over" is modifying a quantifying word:

He has appeared in over 300 movies.

In over five months of studying, I have not missed one Data Sufficiency problem.

She hasn't seen her cousin in over a year.


And that's not counting the popular expression, "He's in over his head." :)
