the answer to last week's Math Beast Challenge problem

For last week's "Slash and Burn" problem, I had said the answer was D: the answer cannot be determined with the information given. I laid out my reasoning in the comment appended to the post.

The official answer is:

D. Woo-hoo!

But I obviously didn't win the random drawing. No more textbooks for me. (I suspect the drawing isn't entirely random; what if somebody won three times in a row?)
