Cost of buying N articles at 5 cents each = 5N cents
Money given = \$1 = 100 cents
Change received (C) = 100 - 5N cents

IMO B

The cost of 1 article = 5 cents
--> Cost of N articles = 5N cents
1\$ = 100 cents

--> Change received = 100 - 5N

Since the total cost would be 5N cents and \$1 = 100 cents, the change C is 100 - 5N cents.
