# An employee spends on an average Rs. 2,500 for the first 8 months

An employee spends on an average Rs. 2,500 for the first 8 months of a year and Rs. 1,500 for the next 4 months. If he saves Rs. 10,000 that year, then his monthly income is Rs.

A. 2,500

B. 3,000

C. 2,600

D. 3,200

**Answer: (B) 3, 000 **

**Solution:-**

The average spend of an employee for first 8 months = Rs. 2, 500

Therefore, he total spend in first 8 months = 2, 500 x 8

= Rs. 20, 000

And, the average spend for next 4 months = Rs. 1, 500

Therefore, he total spend in next 4 months = 1, 500 x 4

= Rs. 6, 000

So, he total spend in a year = 20, 000 + 6, 000

= Rs. 26, 000

If he saves Rs. 10, 000 that year,

Then, the total earning in that year = 26, 000 + 10, 000

= Rs. 36, 000

Thus, his monthly income = 36, 000/12

= Rs. 3, 000

Hence, the correct answer is option (B) 3, 000.
