    Answer: (3) Rs.24
    Explanation:-
    A vendor sells lemons at the rate of 5 for Rs.14
    Gain = 40 %
    Then, cost price of 5 lemon = 14 x 100/140
    = Rs.10
    The cost price of one lemon  = 10/5
    = Rs.5

    Therefore, the cost price of 12 lemon = 12 x 2
    = Rs.24

    Hence the answer is (3) Rs.24.
