Answer:A. Luis is eligible for a home loan; he meets all of the requirements.

Step-by-step explanation:Luis’s monthly income is $91,500/12 = $7625. The loan payment as a percentage of this income is …

$2100/$7625 ≈ 27.54%

This amount is less than 28%, so Luis qualifies according to the first criterion.

__

The total of Luis’s monthly debt payments with the loan will be …

$2100 +370 +165 +45 = $2680

As a percentage of his monthly income, this is …

$2680/$7625 = 35.15%

This amount is less than 36%, so Luis qualifies according to the second criterion.

Luis is eligible for a home loan; he meets all of the requirements.
