Correct option is A)

let the salary be x . Amount deducted in house rent is (10x)/100=x/10 so remaining salary is 9x/10 and amount deducted on children's education is (9x/10)∗(15/100)=27x/200 again calculate remaining amount it will be 153x/200

now calculate deduction for the clothes also.. it will be (153x/200)∗10/100=153x/2000 again calculate remaining amount so it will be 1377x/2000  which is equal to 1377 so the salary will be 2000.

Hence option A is correct.

From the salary of an officer, 10% is deducted as house rent, 15% the rest he spends on children’s education and 10% of the balance, he spends on clothes. After this expenditure he is left with Rs 1377. His salary is:

A Rs 2000 B Rs 2040 C Rs 2100 D Rs 2200 Open in App Solution

The correct option is C Rs 2000

Suppose that his salary = Rs 100

House rent = Rs 10, balance = Rs 90

Expenditure on education

= R s ( 15 100 × 90 ) = R s . 13.50 Balance = Rs 76.50

Expenditure on clothes

= R s ( 10 100 × 76.50 ) = R s . 7.65

Balance now = Rs 68.85

If balance is Rs 68.85, salary = Rs 100

If balance is Rs 1377, salary

= R s 100 68.85 × 1377 = Rs 2000. Suggest Corrections 15 SIMILAR QUESTIONS
