        In the question it says that the actual output is 850kg (not that the loss is 850).

        The input is 1000kg and so the total loss is 1000 – 850 = 150 kg.
        The normal loss is 100kg (10% x 1000) and so the extra 50kg is the abnormal loss.

      @merryjxm, I am not sure that I understand your question.
      The normal loss is the average/expected loss, and this is decided by the company.
      The total loss is a matter of fact – some months they will lose more than expected and some months less. The difference is the abnormal loss or an abnormal gain.
