    Answer: (4) Rs. 5, 500

    Explanation:-
    The average monthly income of 4 family member = Rs. 6, 250
    Therefore, total monthly income 4 family member = 6, 250 x 4 
     = Rs. 25, 000

    One of the earning member died, thereby the average became Rs. 6, 500, 
    Therefore, the total earning of 3 family members = 6, 500 x 3
     = Rs. 19, 500

    So, the monthly income of the deceased member = 25, 000 – 19, 500
     = 6, 500

    Then, the monthly income of the deceased was Rs. 6, 500.

    Hence, the correct answer is option (4) Rs. 6, 500.
