If a ticket costs $4, then:

revenues of day 1 = 1,000,000 * 4 = 4,000,000 with 10% profit with value of 400k (>200k so accepted)
revenues of day 2 = 1,000,000 * 4 = 4,000,000 with 10% profit with value of 400k (>200k so accepted)
revenues of day 3 = 750,000 * 4 = 3,000,000 with 10% profit with value of 300k (>200k so accepted)
revenues of day 4 = 250,000 * 4 = 1,000,000 with 10% profit with value of 100k (<200k so rejected and the producer receives a minimum quote of 200k for the fourth week)

Sum profit received in 4 weeks = 400k+400k+300k+200k = 1300k = 1,300,000

so the answer is E.

(evaluate as a low difficulty question)

10% OF 4 IS 0.4 CENTS

WEEK ONE: 1,000, 000 *0.4 * 0.1 = 400, 000
WEEK TWO: 1,000, 000 *0.4 * 0.1 = 400, 000
WEEK THREE: 750,000 *0.4*0.1 = 300,000
WEEK FOUR: 250,000 *0.4*0.1 = 100,000 (SINCE THE MINIMUM GUARANTEE IS 200,000) HENCE IT SJOULD BE 200,000

400+400+300+200 = 1300


IMO: E

I think the language is a bit confusing I thought min guaranteed amount is 200k per week for 4 weeks tantamount to 800k.
