    Answer: (3) 1500

    Explanation:-
    Let the number be X

    If 75/2%  of a number is 900.
    Then, X x 75/2 x 100  = 900
    3 X/8 = 900
    3 X = 900 x 8
    3 X = 7200
    X  = 7200/3
    X  =  2400

    Then, 125/2% of 2400 = 2400 x 125/2 x 100
    = 12 x 125
    = 1500

    Then 125/2% of the number will be 1500.

    Hence, the correct answer is option (3) 1500.
