How can anything be 120% less than another. Should be 20%.

I agree it should be 20%. 120% is impossible mathematically.

If it's a 100k Benz, then I get the benz plus 20k for pocket change....

Crejoc, no offense mate, but I think the creator of this problem owes me a Ferrari, and some cash in change!

How can the cost be 120 % lower? I assume it is 20%

The price of purchasing a car in Country Q is 20 percent less than the price of purchasing a car in Country Y. Even after transportation fees and tariff charges are added, it is still cheaper for a buyer to import car from Country Q to Country Y than to buy car in Country Y.

The statements above, if true, best support which of the following assertions?

A. Gasoline prices in Country Q are 20 percent below those in Country Y.

B. Importing cars from Country Q to Country Y will eliminate 20 percent of the sales of cars in Country Y.

C. The tariff on a car imported from Country Q to Country Y is less than 20 percent of the price of a car in Country Y.

D. The fee for transporting a car from Country Q to Country Y is more than 20 percent of the price of a car in Country Q.

E. It takes 20 percent less time to transport a car in Country Q than it does in Country Y.

Only C makes sense. If tariff on the imports is less than 20% in Country Q from Country Y. Then it is always beneficial to buy a car from Country Q.

question stem with numerical example:

80+x (Tarrif and transportation costs)<100
This implies that X should be less than 20
C. is exactly saying that x<20
