Read the below passage carefully and answer the questions:

The government of an island nation is in the process of deciding how to spend its limited income. It has $7 million left in its budget and eight programs to choose among. There is no provision in the constitution to have a surplus, and each program has requested the minimum amount they need; in other words, no program may be partially funded. The programs and their funding requests are:

* Hurricane preparedness: $2.5 million
* Harbor improvements: $1 million
* School music program: $0.5 million
* Senate office building remodeling: $1.5 million
* Agricultural subsidy program: $2 million
* National radio: $0.5 million
* Small business loan program: $3 million
* International airport: $4 million


If the legislature decides to fund the agricultural subsidy program, national radio, and the small business loan program, what two other programs could they fund?

[A]. harbor improvements and international airport
[B]. harbor improvements and school music program
[C]. hurricane preparedness and school music program
[D]. hurricane preparedness and international airport
[E]. harbor improvements and hurricane preparedness

Answer: Option B


The only two programs that total 1.5 million dollars are the harbor improvements and school music program.

But the total amount he refunded is 5.5 million then how can option B is possible?

The agriculture, radio and loan programs cost 5.5m which leaves us (7-5.5)m = 1.5m. Since harbour costs 1m and music costs 0.5m, then B is the right answer.
