    LIFO = Last In First Out.

    Whatever you just bought, or made, is what you sell next.

    If I start with 5 units @$10,
    then buy 7 @$20,
    then sell 10,

    which 10 do I sell?

    I sell the _last_ 10 that I got, which will be the 7@$20 and 3 of the 5 @$10.

    That will leave me with the first two I bought, which I valued @ $10 each.

    Now look at your question again. Which 700 were sold? Which 250 were left?

    It is B. $2,750
