A fruit merchant divides a large lot of oranges into four classes: A, B, C, D. The number of
oranges in class A and class B doubles that in class C while the number of oranges in class B
and class D doubles that in class A. If 7 oranges from class B are upgraded to class A, class A
will then contain twice as many oranges as class B. It is known that one of the four classes
contains 54 oranges. Determine which one class it belongs to.
