    Answer: (3) Rs. 1, 405

    Explanation:-
    The average monthly salary of 15 workers in a factory = Rs. 285
    Then, the total monthly salary of 15 workers in a factory = 15 x 285
     = Rs. 4275

    If the manager is included, the average becomes Rs.355. 
    Then, the total salary of 15 workers and manager = 16 x 355
     = Rs. 5680

    Thus, the salary of manager = 5680 – 4275
     = Rs. 1, 405
    Hence, the correct answer is option (3) Rs. 1, 405.
