Revenue last year from the sale of \(P\) is \(20\cdot 1 = 20\)
Revenue last year from the sale of \(Q\) is \(17\cdot 2 = 34\)

Total Revenue from the sale of \(P\) and \(Q\) last year is 54.

Average Revenue from the sale of \(P\) and \(Q\) last year is \(\frac{54}{2+1}=18\)

Therefore, __E__ is the correct answer.
