Solution:
Option(A) is correct

Total income of all five companies:

= $(35 + 50 + 40 + 40 + 50)$ million US $\$$

= 215 million US $\$$

Total expenditure of all five companies:

= $(45 + 40 + 45 + 30 + 45)$ million US $\$$

= 205 million US $\$$.

⇒ % Profit $=\left[\dfrac{(215 - 205)}{ 205 }× 100\right]\%$

$= 4.88\%$

5%
