    Answer: (C) Rs. 10
    Explanation:-
    Let be the price of turban = Rs.P  & the monthly salary is Rs.X
    Then, the salary of 12 months = 9 X =  90 + P
    And the salary of 1 months = (90 + P)/12
    Therefore, the salary of 9 months = 9 X = 65 + P
    Then, the salary of 3 months  3X = (90  + P ) – ( 65 – P )
    3X = 25
    12 X = 100
    90 + P = 100
    P = 100 – 90
    P = Rs.10
    Hence, the answer is (C) Rs.10
