    Correct Option is (3) Rs. 1500

    Explanation:-
    The average expenditure of a man for first five months = Rs. 1200
    Therefore, the total expenditure of five months = 1200 x 5 
     = Rs. 6, 000

    The average expenditure of next seven months = Rs. 1300
    Therefore, the total expenditure of seven months = 1300 x 7 
     = Rs. 9100

    He saves in a year = Rs. 2900

    So, the total income of a man in a year = 6, 000 + 9, 100 + 2, 900
     = Rs. 18, 000
    Then, the average monthly income of a man = 18, 000/12
     = Rs. 1, 500

    Hence, the answer is (3) Rs. 1500.
