    D. $55,000

    Explanation:

    Sales = 250,000

    Gross Profit = 250,000 x 40% = 100,000

    Cost of goods sold = 250,000 - 100,000 = 150,000

    Cost of good sold = Opening Inventory + Purchases - Closing Inventory

    150,000 = 35,000 + 200,000 - Closing Inventory

    150,000 = 235,000 - Closing Inventory

    Closing Inventory = 235,000 - 150,000

    Closing Inventory = 85,000

    Inventory damaged by flood = 85,000 - 30,000 = 55,000
