Best answer
Correct Answer - Option 2 : 1896

Given:

A number is increased by 37.5%

Calculation:

37.5% = 37.5/100 = 3/8

We take original number = 8x,

Thus, if increased by 37.5%, number becomes 8x + 3x = 11x

Also, given new number = 2607

⇒ 11x = 2607

⇒ x = 237

Also, New number : original number = 11x : 8x

Thus, original number = 8x = 8 × 237 = 1896
