Answer: C
Need to use the informat comma6.2 to read the value properly.
data inventory;
input idnum 5. @10 price comma6.2;
24613 $25.31

Vikas said...

Answer is (C).
Because program creates the data set and read the first value, however, fails to read the value for price.

Answer is C, becaus price has a default type, which is numeric 8 (8.). Space is converted to missing numeric.

Dutchy said...

Regarding C
If informat = Dollar6.2 or Comma6.2 then it works. In both cases, giving the same result.
So heading spaces could be concidered as numeric if you use the correct INFORMAT.
