Solution:
Option(D) is correct

Let the Total Cost be $360C$ while the Revenue Generated be $360R$ for ABC Ltd. in the year 2006.

Profit generated by,

Road transport, $= 72R – 72C$

Rail transport, $= 108R – 90C$

Air transport, $= 180R – 198C$

The profit generated is a function of $R$ and $C$ whose value are not known.

So the answer cannot be determined.
