    Answer: (3) Rs.4,500 

    Solution:- 
    Let us consider that the bonus paid to the employee at level as C.
    Bonus paid to the employee at level B is 2C.
    Bonus paid to the employee at level A is 1(1 / 2) x 2C = 1.5 x 2C = 3C
    If 50 employees were on level A, 75 on level B and 100 on level C, then bonus paid to all employees is,
    50 x 3C + 75 x 2C + 100 x C = 600000
    150C + 150C + 100C = 600000
    400C = 600000
    C = 1500
    Amount paid to each employee in level A is,
    3C = 3(1500) = 4500

    Hence amount paid to each employee in level A is Rs. 4500.
