Gross Profit is always higher for FIFO than  LIFO. Cost of Goods sold is going to be always higher for LIFO and lower for FIFO.  LIFO tends to go for more of  a tax break approach. Companies usually like to use FIFO or Average, sometimes both. Both the Gross Profits for FIFO and Average are much higher than LIFO's. The answer is D here.
