A. \$11.5.
B. \$12.
C. \$13.
D. \$14.5.
E. \$15.

Charges for 7 Hours = ( First hour @ \$ 0.50 ) + ( 3 hours @ \$ 3 ) + ( 3.5 hours @ \$ 1 )

Charges for 7 Hours = ( 1 @ \$ 0.50 ) + ( 3 hours @ \$ 3 ) + ( 3.5 hours @ \$ 1 )

Charges for 7 Hours = ( \$ 0.50 ) + ( \$ 9) + ( \$ 3.5 )

Charges for 7 Hours = ( \$ 0.50 ) + ( \$ 9) + ( \$ 3.50 )

Charges for 7 Hours = \$ 13

Hence correct answer must be (C)
