Without adding your reasoning, tell me what you think the answer is.

Financially, it's the same as:

Man buys a horse for $60, then sells it for $70. Next, he buys a cow for $80 and sells it for $90.

Does that change anyone's answer?

He made $20. $10 profit on each transaction. It you look at each transaction separately it makes more sense.
