    Answer: (1) 70 

    Explanation:-
    Total money Ali had = Rs. 320

    He spent 3/4 of it to buy a watch.
    Then, remainder money = 320 – 320 x 3/4
       = 320 – 240
       = Rs. 80 

    He used 1/8 of it to buy a pen.
    Then, left money = 80 – 80 x 1/8
     = 80 – 10
     = Rs. 70 

    Hence, the correct answer is option (1) 70.
