What is for sale?

Hey! I see that the answer has been given but just for fun I'd be curious to see what someone thinks about my answer - always like to see how people look at things differently.....

I normalized all the numbers based on what was given above (given numbers are underlined/bolded) to find out the price of 1 unit for each item listed
1/ 50 / 100
$.25 /$12.5/ $25$.01 /$.50 /$1
$.0075 /$.375 / $.75 My assumption was that on sale meant "available for purchase at the lowest price" I said the third item was "on sale" because it has the lowest unit price of$.0075 for 1.
what do you think?
