Can't come up with the solution for the problem

Hello,
In “End of Unit 2 Assessment” the last question is:

From the Departmental Monthly Production Cost Report, what are the total variable cost for May?

And the possible answers are:
Select one:

a. $56,000

b. $200,000

c. $330,000

d. $386,000

By guess I chose just any answer and it was correct one. And the feedback was “CORRECT FEEDBACK: Exactly! This is the total overhead.”
First of all I can’t connect together “variable costs” and “overhead” (as far as I know, overhead can be both), and second, I can’t figure out how to arrive to the number it was given as a correct answer.

I’d appreciate the explanation. Thank you
