Correct Answer - Option 1 : 20

Given:

Equal numbers of one rupee, 50 paisa, and 25 paisa coins

Total value in the bag is Rs. 35

Calculation;

Let the number of coins be x

one rupee is equal to 100 paisa, 35 repee is equal to 3,500

⇒ 100x + 50x + 25x = 3500

⇒ 175x = 3,500

⇒ x = 20

∴ The number of coins of each value is 20.
