    B option incorrect since women's shirt is not twice of men's shirt

    for option A 12*9 = 108 and 8*4 = 32 108+32=140 which is less than 240 so it is also correct

    as for c option for women => 12*15=180 and for men 8*6 = 48 180+48 = 228 again less than 240 so correct

    no for option D => women => 12*17= 204 for man => 8*7 = 56 here 204 + 56 = 260 which is greater than 240 hence wrong option
