Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

The latest annual report and accounts of the motorbus department of the Eastbourne Corporation are of more than passing interest, and we reproduce them in extenso pages 297-299). Eastbourne originally intended to have electric traction, and two schemes were considered ; one, for a route length of 3,170 yards with seven trams, was to have cost £30.000; a revised estimate, for a route length of only 2,200 yards with four tramcars, was to have cost £20,000. To-day, after seven completed years of working, the ratepayers own 16 motorbuses, a well-equipped depot and ample "spares," in respect of which the capital debt stands at only £11,806, whilst the seventh year of working shows a profit, and this in spite of handicaps inseparable from the ownership of a fleet in which there is a large proportion of small and early-type vehicles.
