Correct Answer - Option 3 : 30

Calculation:

Let be assume Income of B = I then the income of A = 5I/4

Expenditure of A = E, then the expenditure of B = (2/3) × E

Savings of A = (5I/4) – E = (5I – 4E)/4 = 12 … (1)

Savings of B = I – (2/3)E = (3I – 2E)/3 = 12 … (2)

When we will solve the equation (1) and (2) then

⇒ I = 24, A’s income = (5/4) × 24 = 30

∴ The required result will be 30.
