To determine

Identify the correct option for the given statement.

Explanation of Solution

Prime cost:

Prime cost refers to a cost which is directly involved in the process of manufacturing an item. Prime cost includes direct material, and direct labor costs.

Conversion cost:

A conversion cost refers to the cost of converting the raw materials into a finished product. Conversion cost includes direct labor as well as factory overhead costs.

Calculate the amount of prime costs and conversion costs:

Prime costs:

Prime cost = Direct materials + Direct labor=$100,000 + $50,000=$150,000

Therefore, the prime costs are $150,000
