Solution

## The correct option is B Balanced problem, optimal solutionTotal supply = 15+15 = 30 Total demand = 10+20=30 Total supply = Total demand It is a balanced transportation model. To check the optimality we have to do the empty cell evaluation (S2,D1). Cell evaluation = 15-5+20-5 =25 As it is positive, further improvement is not possible. So it is the optimal solution.
