Answer:

Let x souveniers of type A and y souveniers of type B are manufactured we have LPP as
          Maximise z = 5x + 6y
          st 5x + 8y  200
          10x + 8y  240 or 5x + 4y  120
          x  0, y  0
         

Corner Point

z = 5x + 6y

O(0, 0)
A(24, 0)
B(8, 20)
C(0, 25)

z = 0
z = 120
z = 160
z = 150

Profit is maximum when souveniers of type A and 20 souveniers of type B are manufactured max profit = Rs 160
