    Answer: (1) Rs.7.00
    Explanation:-
    Let the cost of adults = Rs.X
    The cost of two adults and their child = Rs.1750

    According to the question,

    X + X + X/2 = 17.50
    (2 X + 2 X + X)/2 = 17.50
    5 X = 17.50 x 2
    X = 35/5
    X = 7
    The cost of an adult’s ticket = Rs.7

    Hence, the answer is (1) Rs.7.00
