ExplanationIn Quantity A, \(\frac{24}{80000}\) = 0.0003, or 0.03 cents per word.

In Quantity B, \(\frac{1}{1000}\) = 0.001, or 0.1 cents per word.

Quantity B is greater. Note that the calculation was not strictly necessary—it would have been more efficient to notice that the book costs 24 times the story but has 80 times the words. (Then remember to choose the greater number!)

Hence option B is correct!
