Why are you attempting questions for which you do not have an answer? You should be using a Revision Kit from one of the ACCA approved publishers – they have answers and explanations.
And have you watched my free lectures on transfer pricing?
You have not said which division has no spare capacity.
Assuming that it is the Sole division that has no spare capacity then the minimum transfer price per unit will be the marginal cost of 21 plus the lost contribution of 7. But then the Boot division would not buy them because they can buy externally for $25.
You have not given enough information to answer the second scenario because it depends what the total capacity of the Sole division is.
