### Difficulty Level

Easy### Solution

Option A is the right answer.

### Option Analysis

40 oranges for $5, which makes each orange cost $0.125 (5/40).

Then the store sold each orange for $0.2, so the profits for each orange is 0.2-0.125 = $0.075.

Because there are 40 oranges

40 X 0.075 = $3.

**So, the answer is A.**
