Hello Customer,

Thanks for your question.

The answer is a. $104,000
Taxable income = 210,000 - 230,000 + 150,000 = 130,000. Although the allowable 80% dividends-received deduction is 120,000 (150,000 x 80%), there is a limitation based on 80% of taxable income, 130,000 x 80% = 104,000.

Hope this helps!
