It says "the machine...has no alternative use" which is another way of saying there is no opportunity cost because by definition opportunity cost is the amount you could earn from the best next alternative. In this case the alternative is 0 so there opportunity cost. Therefore 650000 (annual revenue) - 600000 (cost) = 50000
