    D is the correct answer the reason is shown through these two situations: before the raise at his job, Mr.Lee could buy a good X priced $1000 with a salary of $1000. Then, with a raise at his job of 2% and an inflation rate of 3%, he could not buy it anymore with $1020 (new salary), because the good X it has just risen to $1030, making Mr.Lee worse off than before.
