    The correct answer is D.

    Explanation:

    Giving the following information:

    Thomas Company allocates Maintenance Department costs based on square footage serviced.

    Square feet:

    Maintenance = 500

    Cafeteria = 3,000

    Cutting = 1,000

    Assembly = 9,000

    Total = 13,500

    Proportional usage = cutting/total square feet = 1,000/13,500 = 0.074 = 7%
