    (B) $8,000 (0.80 per pound shipped).

    Step-by-step explanation:

    In ABC system, the shipping cost to be assigned can be calculated by using the shipping cost per pound. Shipping cost per pound will be an appropriate cost driver for the shipping activity. The revenue generated by customer is irrelevant for computation of total cost.

    Shipping cost = Shipping cost per pound * quantity ordered by customers.

    Therefore,

    Shipping cost = (Total shipping cost : total quantity shipped) * Quantity ordered by customer.

    Therefore,

    Shipping cost = 1,200,000 : 1,500,000 * 10,000

    Shipping cost = 0.8 * 10,000

    Shipping cost = $8000
