    Answer: (1) 12

    Explanation:-
    Let the number of children be X.
    The total number of sweets = 720

    According to the question,
    X x X x 20/100 = 720
    X2/5 = 720
    X2 = 720 x 5
    X2 = 3600
    Square root on both sides,
    X = 60

    Then, the total number of children is 60

    The number of sweets = 60 x 20/100
    = 12

    Then, the number of sweets each children receive is 12.

    Hence, the answer is (1) 12.
