    Answer: (3) 150.
    Explanation:-

    Let the number of 25p, 10p and 5p coins be X, 2X, 3X.
    Then, sum of their values = (25X/100 + 10 x 2X/100 + 5 x 3X/100) = 60X/100
    therefore, 60X/100 = 30
    X = 30 x 100/60 = 50

    The number of 5p coins = 3 x 50 = 150

    Hence, the answer is (3) 150.
