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.
