|||||||

Answer: Option B Explanation: Let P, Q and R represent their respective monthly incomes. Then, we have: P + Q = (5050 x 2) = 10100 .... (i) Q + R = (6250 x 2) = 12500 .... (ii) P + R = (5200 x 2) = 10400 .... (iii) Adding (i), (ii) and (iii), we get: 2(P + Q + R) = 33000 or P + Q + R = 16500 .... (iv) Subtracting (ii) from (iv), we get P = 4000. P's monthly income = Rs. 4000. |
