    Answer:  (1) Rs. 120 

    Explanation:-
    Let the cost price of a book be Rs. X
    Therefore, the cost price of 3 books = Rs. 3 X
    And, the cost price of 12 books = Rs. 12 X

    Selling price of 12 books = Rs. 1800
    Then, 12 X + 3 X = 1800
     15 X = 1800
    X = 1800/15
    X = 120 

    Then, the cost price of a book is Rs. 120. 

    Hence, the correct answer is option (1) Rs. 120.
