Show Answer

Correct Answer: Option: 2

Ratio of their incomes = 3:4:5

Ratio of their interests = 6:5:4

Therefore, the ratio of their interest income = $\left( 3\times 6 \right):\left( 4\times 5 \right):\left( 5\times 4 \right)=18:20:20$ 

Let the interest incomes of Amala, Bina, and Gouri be 18x, 20x, and 20x respectively.

Given,

Bina's interest income exceeds Amala's by Rs 250

Therefore, 20x-18x=2x=250

Or x = 125.

Total interest incomes = 18x+20x+20x=58x = 58×125 =7250
