Best answer
Correct Answer - Option 3 : INR 60000

Given:

A woman spends 15% of her salary on food. She is now left with INR 51000.

Calculation:

Let woman’s salary = 100x

Amount spent on food = 15% of 100x = (15/100) × 100x = 15x

⇒ Amount left with woman = 100x – 15x = 85x

According to the question,

51000 = 85x

⇒ x = INR 600

∴ Salary of woman = 100x = 100 × 600 = INR 60000
