    E) $45,375

    Explanation:

    This is because Authorized shares are the total shares that the company can issue.

    There is a difference between issued and outstanding shares of 500 shares, this may be because these shares are currently held by the company itself and thus dividends are payable only on outstanding shares

    This gives us 27,500 * 1.65 = $43,375
