(A) \$800
(B) \$900
(C) \$1050
(D) \$1250
(E) \$1300

Fixed Expense = 250

Total expense for 10 guests = 650

Variable expense = 650 -250 = 400

per head variable expense = 400 /10 = 40

Variable expense for 20 guests = 40 * 20 = 800

Total expense for 20 guests = 800 + 250 = 1050.

The best answer is C.
