Best answer
Correct Answer - Option 3 : 2,425

Given:

Total money = Rs.6060

Calculation:

Let amount of money A, B and C has after reduction be Rs.5a, Rs.7a and Rs.8a respectively.

⇒ (5a + 15) + (7a + 20) + (8a + 25) = 6060

⇒ a = 300

New share of C = Rs.2400

∴ Original share of C = 2400 + 25 = Rs.2425
