Thanks Ariz,

You know what, The first thing to pass in CSS EXAM is use your smartness and thats why only smart people pass CSS, and bookworms only abuse their fate.

The Questions you mentioned in your topic, Is highly associated with Financial Management, And if you look back into the past papers, you will never find any such type of questions, Than why Waste our precious time?.

I recommend you to, Just solve 10-15 years Papers, and rest left with ALLAH. I was doing today Accounting. And i did the same what i have mentioned in my post. Trust me Smart ways works every time.

CSP, PSP ADIL MEMON, also did the same, he did selective studies and he gone thorugh CSS. Hope you have understand my point.

If I am not wrong then here goes the solution. Please do check it...

1 Lot = 1000 chips
O = 40
S = Monthly Demand = 20,000 chips
S = 20 Lots
C = 0.10 per chip
C = 100 per lot

Q = Under-root ( 2(O)(S)/C )

a)=4lots = 4000 chips
b)=32lots = 32000 chips
c)=2lots = 2000 chips
