I am not sure wiz these MCQ's answers cause I can't find the answer on the website therefore I can't check my answer. I have put my answer on the picture.

2.In Q4, why the answer is not C?

I am confused with Q10, Q12 and Q15. The answer for 10, 12 and 15 are C, A/C and A respectively.

For Q10, I think MR=MC and 5X( X is the number of quantity picked)=110, but there is no answer for this result.

For 12, I chose B and for 15 I had no idea.
