    correct option is C. $150,000

    Explanation:

    given data

    purchased = $100,000

    fair market value = $200,000

    AGI = $500,000

    to find out

    maximum charitable contribution deduction for the year

    solution

    we know that in charitable contribution that is deductible up to the 50% of modified adjust gross income

    so when donations are in the form of assets that is appreciated

    then deduction allow will be 30% of modified adjust gross income

    hence charitable contribution = $100,000 to $200,000

    and allowable deduction = 30% of $500,000

    allowable deduction = $150,000

    so that maximum charitable contribution deduction for the year is $150,000

    correct option is C. $150,000
